Northwest Ohio Hemophilia Treatment Center
The Northwest Ohio Hemophilia Treatment Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of hemophilia, von Willebrands disease and other genetic bleeding disorders for infants, children and adults. The center is the only federally designated facility serving 21 counties in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan and is part of the national network of treatment centers across the country.
In addition, the center participates in national research and outcome studies to improve the care and treatment of bleeding disorders, and a multidisciplinary team of experts provides comprehensive care to patients and their families. The team includes pediatric and adult hematologists, orthopaedists, nurses, a social worker, a nutritionist, a dentist, a psychologist, a physical therapist, and a genetic counselor. School visits, home visits and home therapy education are also provided to families.
The center also has a strong orthopaedic program for patients with joint problems, which provides evaluation, prevention and treatment – including guidance for participating in exercise and sports – as well as surgical interventions. The center is the only site in the state and region to provide radionuclide (isotopic) synovectomies, a non surgical joint procedure to prevent bleeding.
