The UCSF Hemophilia Treatment Center is a comprehensive pediatric and adult program for patients with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, platelet disorders and other rare bleeding disorders, and their families. One of the first of its kind in the United States, the center was established in 1977 and is a state and federally designated Hemophilia Treatment Center, providing a full range of services, including diagnosis, treatment, counseling and education.
At UCSF, we embrace the concept of treating the whole person and family by listening and addressing all medical and psychosocial aspects of living with a bleeding disorder. We develop individualized care plans for patients and families and provide opportunities to participate in clinical trials.
For children with hemophilia, see our Pediatric Hemophilia Treatment Center.
Our team consists of hematologists or blood specialists, nurse practitioners, nurses, psychosocial professionals and physical therapists who are leaders in their fields. We help patients and their families with medical care and provide emotional support.
