Arkansas Center for Bleeding Disorders at Arkansas Children’s

When your child is diagnosed with hemophilia or a bleeding disorder, managing and living with the condition can seem overwhelming. You can rest easy knowing that with the proper care – and a few precautions – your child can live life like most children.

In fact, sports and physical activity are encouraged because they help your child develop stronger muscles and joints, which can reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes.

The experts at the Arkansas Center for Bleeding Disorders work with you and your child to create a care plan that keeps your child healthy while living life to the fullest.

We’ve been assisting families living with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders for more than 30 years by offering excellent clinical care and research. We deliver the most up-to-date, multidisciplinary care for patients from birth through adulthood. Your child will receive attentive and watchful care here at Arkansas Children’s.
