What to Expect in Pediatric Blood Disorders Evaluation

Many children who are seen by their pediatricians may be referred to our pediatric blood disorder program at the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center due to an abnormal laboratory test or symptoms of a possible blood disorder. Diagnosis of a blood disorder is made using specialized laboratory tests performed by the Rhode Island Hospital Laboratory. Some children may require blood transfusions or other therapies, while many do not. 

With our care, most patients enjoy healthy, active daily lives, fully participating in school or work, non-contact sports, and other activities.
