The specialists at Metro Heart & Vascular operate an Anticoagulation/Coumadin Clinic specially designed for patients being treated with anti-coagulating drugs. This program assists patients who are susceptible to bleeding due to their medication.
While reducing the ability of the blood to clot and thereby reducing the risk of certain conditions such as heart attacks, leg clots, lung clots and other disorders, the use of the drug Coumadin can increase the risk of bleeding.
At the Metro Heart & Vascular Anticoagulation/Coumadin Clinic our specialists use the latest technology to monitor the blood’s thickness to offer patients immediate results. Patients are subsequently given education opportunities that can make Coumadin therapy both safer and more effective. To view some of our patients’ stories, click here.
