The Thrombosis Clinic provides care for patients with a confirmed case of thrombophilia and patients taking anticoagulants on a daily basis. Thrombophilia is a tendency to develop blood clots in a leg or a lung. A clot in a leg is called a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and a clot in a lung is called a pulmonary embolism (PE).
