Anticipating and preventing or treating bleeding events, particularly hemophilic arthropathy and treatment related complications such as inhibitors reduces overall morbidity, hospitalizations, mortality and improves quality of life. This mission to provide a holoistic approach to the care of patient with a bleeding disorder is accomplished by our multidisciplinary team of providers who have experience and expertise specific to bleeding disorders. The importance of psychosocial support and counseling, along with other services like genetic counseling, are important in rounding out all aspects of dealing with this lifelong inherited condition.
The New York Comprehensive Hemophilia Treatment Center also enables patients to stay abreast of the most recent developments in research through patient meetings and discussion at annual comprehensive care visits. The Comprehensive Hemophilia Treatment Center conducts clinical studies and participates in multicenter trials of newer therapies, encouraging patients to participate and contribute to our better understanding of their disease, and in turn benefitting the bleeding disorders research field itself and future generations of patients.
