Treatments | Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center

Though there is no cure for hematology and thrombotic conditions, we offer our patients the full spectrum of replacement therapy, platelet therapy and anticoagulants, including new promising techniques. Our specialists work together to treat you as a whole person – considering not only medical needs but also social and physical needs.

Replacement therapy for hemophilia

Replacement therapy is the main treatment for patients with hemophilia. These therapies replace the clotting factor that is missing or low in a patient.

Our treatment options include:

  • Immunosuppressant therapy for patients with acquired hemophilia, including:
    • Steroids
    • Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG)
    • Certain chemotherapy drugs, such as:
      • Cyclophosphamide
      • Vincristine
      • Rituximab
  • Medications, including antifibrinolytics (drugs that facilitate clotting)
  • Desmopressin (DDAVP) for patients with mild hemophilia, or von Willebrand disease
  • Local clotting therapies, such as thrombin gel and fibrin glue

Anticoagulants and therapies for thrombosis

We evaluate your condition and determine the best treatment for you. We offer a wide variety of treatment options, so we are able to pick the best one suited to your individual needs. Our thrombosis therapies include:

  • Anticoagulants, including:
    • Unfractionated heparin
    • Low molecular weight heparins, including Fondaparinux
    • Warfarin
    • Dabigatran
    • Rivaroxaban
    • Argatroban
  • Antiplatelet therapy
  • Antithrombin therapy
  • Treatments in collaboration with other specialties
