Our efforts pivot around a comprehensive consultation. We explain the nature of coagulation disorders in understandable terms and list all the treatment options. The doctor's report contains the concisely structured laboratory findings and recommendations for therapy. Pamphlets written by our staff assist us our consultation services. What counts for us is medicine that is evidence-based; that means that only scientifically validated knowledge is integrated into our patients’ care. Over-diagnosis should be avoided. Laboratory tests with weak substantiation by scientific studies tend to unsettle the patient, rather than confer benefit. It goes without saying that our medical staff participates in continuing education and on-going training and is knowledgeable about the latest treatment concepts. It is the quality of the services that distinguish a modern coagulation center from others—starting with the blood draw, extending through the lab work-up and consultation, all the way up to clinical management.
Disorders of the coagulation system can lead to reduced hemostasis (lowered ability of the body to arrest bleeding) or to excessive clotting (a tendency to develop thromboses). The diagnosis of these disorders can be a complicated and intricate undertaking. A blood draw in and of itself can activate platelets or plasmatic coagulation. Long transportation times can falsify readings. All staff members at the Coagulation Center draw blood in a very gentle manner. And the Coagulation Lab doing the work-up is just around the corner. Within minutes after it is drawn, the blood is processed there. The Coagulation Center's lab not only applies standard methods of coagulation diagnostics, but also employs special approaches. This is especially true for diagnosing platelet dysfunction. The Center's doctors and lab techs are highly knowledgeable about the laboratory methods, as are they aware of their conclusiveness and the limits of results. The laboratory is accredited according to DIN EN ISO 15189.
