When you’re dealing with thrombosis, your main enemy is time. If it’s not quickly treated, it could lead to serious medical problems.
St. Paul’s Hospital’s expansion of its Thrombosis Clinic to five days a week will help get patients who are newly diagnosed with venous thromboembolism (or blood clots) to the clinic quickly and on a personalized therapy.
Thrombosis is the most common vascular condition after heart attack and stroke.
The clinic’s expanded hours are helping people like Emergency Department visitors, who can be sent to the clinic within 72 hours for care, and those diagnosed by their family doctor.
