What is a bleeding disorder?
If you experience abnormal bleeding or bruising unexpectedly or following an injury or surgery, you may have a bleeding disorder that requires medical attention. Some bleeding disorders are “acquired,” which means they are not inherited and may be due to medications or an immune system condition.
Other bleeding conditions like hemophilia, von Willebrand disease and some rare platelet disorders are inherited or passed down from parents to their children. Sometimes, easy bruising or bleeding is caused by fragile connective tissues around blood vessels that makes them tear and leak blood into surrounding tissues.
Diagnosing bleeding disorders
Diagnosing why you are experiencing abnormal bleeding often takes time and patience. The hematology specialists at Novant Health go beyond traditional care, providing high-level expertise and advanced lab testing to accurately diagnose your condition and plan your care. We’ll work closely with you to solve the mysteries of your blood clotting disorder and develop an individualized treatment plan based on the latest research for medicines and procedures.
