The Spots and Dots Clinic

Also known as the "Young Women's Bleeding Clinic," this clinic addresses the congenital and acquired bleeding disorders that often go unrecognized by young women and their clinicians. However, adverse outcomes of common bleeding disorders can be prevented with the right medical treatment and education. Because of this, Children’s Hospital Colorado started the Young Women with Bleeding Disorders Clinic, a collaboration between the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology and Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center (HTC). Together, our main goal is to improve quality of life and patient safety.
