Our patient care team includes hematologists (doctors specially trained to treat bleeding disorders), an obstetrician-gynecologist (a doctor who specializes in caring for the female reproductive system), nurses, a physical therapist, a social worker, and a pediatric dentist.
Treatment for people with hemophilia usually includes factor replacement therapy. This treatment is an infusion (injection into the bloodstream) of medication to prevent or control bleeding. We know the medications and supplies that treat bleeding disorders can be very expensive. As a federally-designated hemophilia treatment center, MHTC can provide these products to patients through the MHTC Factor Program. Any profit earned by the MHTC Factor Program is returned directly to all MHTC patients through services such outreach, education, and resource support. We work with all families to ensure they have access to financial assistance.
