PBS Visits the Downtown Hemophilia Treatment Center
In the month of February, PBS arrived to film at the Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) as part of an educational program about Hemophilia B. PBS wanted to interview dedicated staff members at LAOH devoted to taking care of patients with Hemophilia.
For over 35 years the HTC has managed the care for children and adults with bleeding disorders at LAOH. Hemophilia is characterized by bleeding into the joints and muscles due to incredibly slow clotting of the blood, which makes it a crippling disease and an orthopaedic condition.
LAOH was selected for the PBS Healthy Body Healthy Mind series (airing on Public Television since 2004) about Hemophilia B because our staff members such as Dr. Quon, Dr. James V. Luck and Dr. Carol Kasper are recognized as experts in the treatment of hemophilia. The highly specialized and trained physicians working in the HTC are leaders in their field. Moreover, they are actively involved in Hemophilia based research and treatment.
The program featuring the HTC will air in the month of May and you will be informed the day it airs so, you can tune in to watch how our physicians provide care for individuals with congenital bleeding disorders and for the complications of those disorders, including full care for HIV disease.
Thank you to everyone involved in making this video possible, especially the HTC team for your daily exceptional care and remarkable dedication to our patients.
