Hemophilia, bleeding disorders, clotting disorders, clots in congenital heart disease, heavy menstrual bleeding
My goal is to help patients manage their bleeding or clotting problems in an integrative way that focuses on enjoying life and minimizing long-term effects.
My personal research interest is to better prevent bleeding in patients with hemophilia. I think that bleeding happens in joints and muscles when the amount of factor medication in the body is too low to prevent bleeding when joints and muscles are stressed by physical activities. I am collaborating with our orthopedics department to better understand the physical stresses on joints and muscles during activities, so that we can better tailor factor medication dosing to prevent bleeding.
