Hemophilia

Hemophilia is a genetic disease mainly in boys. There is a gene that does not make the clotting factor properly. So, the boys bleed very easily from very small accidents. They also bleed into muscles and joints eg knees and elbows. Treatment: The clotting factors can be injected into patients to stop the problem. Care is given for all these problems for patients with hemophilia. The hematologists look after the blood problem. They also work with the Orthopedic surgeons and physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors for the muscle and joint problems. The muscle and joint bleeds cause pain and stop people using their arms and legs properly.

Thalassemia

Thalassemia is a genetic disease. The child is born with a gene that makes bad hemoglobin. Patients start getting problems as a child.
