Northwestern Medicine Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders

In Northwestern Memorial Hospital Arkes Pavilion


The Northwestern Medicine Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders is a regional leader in the treatment of patients with non-malignant hematologic disorders.

Outstanding comprehensive clinical care is provided to hundreds of patients annually with a variety of disorders including:

  • Bleeding disorders
  • Thrombotic disorders
  • Myeloproliferative disorders
  • Hemoglobinopathies (including sickle-cell disease)

Care of these patients requires specialized medical expertise and a multidisciplinary approach from physicians, physician assistants, nurses, social workers and others.

About the Center

The Northwestern Medicine Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders was founded more than 30 years ago. It was one of the first places in the country where comprehensive care for bleeding disorders was established.

The Center is a federally designated Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC), one of approximately 140 in the United States. HTCs provide a comprehensive model of care for patients with bleeding disorders, and have been shown to improve quality of life for patients.

Faculty also engage in clinical research. Ongoing projects include the study of thrombotic disorders in cancer patients and those with myeloproliferative disorders. In addition clinical trials are ongoing in the fields of hemophilia/bleeding disorders, thrombotic diseases and myeloproliferative disorders.

The Northwestern Medicine Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders prides itself on personalized healthcare; each patient is an individual with different needs to satisfy.

Patients typically visit the center at least once a year. Providing multiple services to a patient during one visit, the center can address many health needs for each patient with the consultation of a physician, social worker, nurse, physical therapist, orthopaedic surgeon, and gynecologist, who are available during a comprehensive checkup. Studies show that persons with bleeding disorders who come to the treatment center once a year have fewer problems than those who do not.

Most of all, we strongly encourage self-care and home care so each patient can be in control of his/her own life and condition.
