Treating bleeding disorders and thrombotic disorders is complex, requiring a higher lever of medical expertise than most community hospitals can offer.
With the resources of an academic medical practice, SLUCare Physician Group brings together experts from a range of specialties to offer coordinated, comprehensive care, as well as a clotting factor distribution program, in our SLUCare Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders Center.
In our weekly clinic, we take time to truly understand our patients' needs. Your visit may include a medical evaluation by a bleeding disorders specialist, an assessment with our nationally renowned physical therapist, and consultation with a social worker who can help with access to medications, including clotting factor, as well as financial assistance programs to manage treatment costs.
In addition to our core clinic staff, we collaborate with providers from many different specialties to address all aspects of a patient's disorder. Your treatment plan may draw upon the expertise of providers in:
Between annual/biennial visits, our staff is available to advise regarding medical or dental procedures that may involve bleeding or to consult in the event of an emergency.
Our team works with specialty providers to help you get the infusion medications you need, delivered to your home. We also provide education on how to self-infuse, if needed, as part of your treatment plan.
In an emergency, call 314-257-8000 and ask the operator to immediately page the hematologist on call.
