The Center provides treatment for patients with a wide array of conditions, including:
In these conditions, the supply of red blood cells or hemoglobin (which carries oxygen to bodily tissues) declines. They include iron deficiency anemia, anemia of chronic disease, vitamin B12 deficiency, sickle cell anemia, and thalassemia.
Conditions in which the blood fails to clot properly or where patients have an increased tendency to form clots. Types include hemophilia, von Willibrand's disease factor V Leiden, and antiphospholipid syndrome.
Conditions involving white blood cells, agents of the immune system which fight disease, including neutropenia and leukocytosis.
Conditions involving blood platelets needed for clotting, such as thrombocytopenia (ITP and TTP) and thrombocytosis.
Disorders of the bone marrow in which too many blood cells are produced. Types include: polycythemia vera, thrombocythemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia, and primary myelofibrosis.
Conditions of the bone marrow in which not enough blood cells are produced, such as aplastic anemia, myelodysplasia, and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria.
Conditions in which the body fails to process iron properly, such as hemochromatosis and porphyria.
These conditions involve certain immune system cells and disease-fighting proteins. They include benign monoclonal gammopathy, cryoglobulinemia, and amyloidosis.
The Center also helps patients manage the taking of anticoagulant medications such as warfarin, low molecular weight heparin, and anti-platelet agents.
