Hemophilia Treatment Centers

There are approximately 141 hemophilia treatment centers in the United States that offer comprehensive medical care to people with coagulation disorders. The concept of a Hemophilia Treatment Center is having one facility where comprehensive hemophilia care takes place. Care providers treat the whole person and are a great resource to both the patient and their family. They look at every aspect of care including physical, emotional, psychological, educational, financial, and vocational needs. Members of the care provider team include:

  • Hematologists – physicians specializing in blood disorders
  • Nurses – medical specialists in hemophilia care
  • Social Workers -specialists who assist with the issues of daily living, such as adjusting to hemophilia and locating resources for insurance or financial needs
  • Physical Therapists – specialists in activity, exercise, and rehabilitation
  • Orthopedic Specialist – physician specializing in disorders of the bones and joints
