Areas of Focus
Bleeding problems can be very scary for the person who has them. These disorders require a deep understanding of the problem as well as an understanding of how the problem affects the problem medically, socially as well as emotionally.
Platelet disorders are often a concern. Platelets levels can be either too low or too high. Sometimes platelet are neither low nor high; they just do not work as they are supposed to work. All of these concerns are important. We at Prairie Bleeding and Clotting are very comfortable taking care of these issues.
Many people are told that they are anemic. This is especially of concern in women of child-bearing age because of possible heavy menstrual bleeding. We will make sure to evaluate any possible anemia and its possible causes.
White blood cells in the blood are an especially tricky concern. The white cells may be too high or too low. Alternatively, the white cells may be not working as they are supposed to work. We are comfortable with all of these issues.
It is unfortunately common for someone to suddenly find that they have a “Charley Horse” in their leg only to discover that it is actually a blood clot in their leg. We study the why? how? and what do we do about it now? of all blood clots.
