Clinic Overview

The Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders at University of Minnesota Medical Center is dedicated to providing excellent care for persons with bleeding and thrombotic (blood clotting) disorders. As part of the federally funded Hemophilia Treatment Center nationwide network, we are able to offer comprehensive care that meets individual patient needs.

These include diagnostic evaluations and education for new patients as well as long-term follow-up for established patients.
