Benign Hematology

Benign hematologic disorders are non-malignant disorders of the blood, including abnormalities of counts, bleeding, blood clots, and inherited conditions such as von Willebrand disease and sickle cell disease (see below). Patients with hemophilia or other severe inherited bleeding disorders are taken care of by the Comprehensive Center for Bleeding Disorders at Children's Wisconsin.

Sickle Cell Disease Program

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a genetic disease that primarily affects African Americans. It creates red blood cells that have an abnormal "sickle" shape instead of a normal disc shape. The Sickle Cell Disease Program works closely with the pediatric sickle cell program at Children's Hospital and provides care for most adults with SCD in the state of Wisconsin. The clinic provides comprehensive care including disease-modifying therapies, pain management, and urgent evaluations.
