Thrombosis

If you have been diagnosed with a blood clot or thrombosis in either your veins or arteries leading to your heart, you need specialized treatment to ensure the clots are dissolved so that they don't cause serious injury and in some cases death.

Specialists of Jefferson's Division of Hematology and the Cardeza Foundation for Hematologic Research are devoted to research into the causes of a wide variety of diseases of the blood and to the diagnosis and care of patients with blood and lymphatic diseases.

Our physicians have competence in all areas of hematology, with particularly well-recognized depth and experience in diseases affecting blood platelets, hemorrhagic (bleeding) and thrombotic (clotting) disorders, hematologic malignancies (leukemia, Iymphoma and multiple myeloma) and other bone marrow disorders. In addition, our physicians have initiated and participated in a number of clinical trials of newer types of therapy for many of these disorders.
