Von Willebrand disease (vWD) is an inherited bleeding disorder like hemophilia. It is caused by a defect or deficiency of a blood-clotting protein, called the von Willebrand factor. The von Willebrand factor is essential for the beginning stages of clotting and acts like glue to help the platelets stick together and form a blood clot.
We treat our patients who have von Willibrand disease at the Boston Hemophilia Center, a federally-funded joint program between Boston Children’s Hospital and Brigham and Women's Physicians Organization. The Boston Hemophilia Center is the largest hemophilia treatment program in New England, and it provides treatment for a variety of bleeding disorders, including von Willebrand disease.
The Boston Hemophilia Center treatment team helps children and adults with bleeding disorders to manage their illness as independently as possible and therefore lead more normal, healthy lives.
Find in-depth information on von Willebrand disease on the Dana-Farber/Boston Children's website, including details on von Willebrand disease symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and more.
