Thrombophilia, also known as hypercoagulable state, is a condition in which blood clots form throughout the body, including in the heart, veins and lungs.
People with thrombophilia may have too many red blood cells or too many platelets, or they may develop abnormal proteins or antibodies in the blood.
The board-certified, fellowship-trained hematology specialists at Norton Healthcare provide comprehensive care for patients with thrombophilia, working with providers across disciplines to provide safe, effective care.
The hematology specialists at Norton Healthcare work closely with other specialists to optimize anticoagulant therapy for patients. Anticoagulants are medications used to stop existing blood clots from getting bigger and to prevent new clots from forming.
Depending on where the clot forms, hematology specialists may work with your cardiologist, pulmonologist, vascular surgeon and to coordinate your care. Our comprehensive approach includes managing acute or chronic care after a stroke or heart attack, follow-up care and long-term monitoring to optimize anticoagulation therapy to determine the safest and most effective dosing and duration, and to discontinue anticoagulants when needed.
Norton Healthcare hematology services provide comprehensive care for benign blood disorders.
