Hemophilia Treatment Center

Introduction

The Hemophilia Treatment Center looks after patients with Inherited bleeding disorders. These are diseases which are due to an inherited (passed on from parents to their children) deficiency of coagulation factors. This results in prolonged bleeding after cuts / injury. The commonest disorder is Hemophilia which is X-linked (mostly males are affected).  Von Willebrand’s Disease (VWD) is the next common and has autosomal inheritance (both males and females are affected).
