With the region’s most comprehensive pediatric diagnosis, treatment and support programs, our Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center is internationally recognized for expertise in the comprehensive management of hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, afibrinogenemia, platelet function abnormalities, pediatric thrombosis, and other less common bleeding and clotting disorders.

The pediatric and adult clinical component of the University of Colorado Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (the leading regional site of the Maternal Child Health Bureau Network of Hemophilia Treatment) is also part of our Hematology Program.
