About Indiana Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (IHTC)
In 1998, nationally and internationally recognized experts Amy Shapiro, M.D. and Anne Greist, M.D. founded the Indiana Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center (IHTC).
As IHTC expanded, it became one of the nation’s largest hemophilia treatment centers—and, as experts in the care of bleeding disorders, the only center in Indiana to receive federal designation. Now, IHTC delivers patient- and family-centered, comprehensive care for hemophilia, thrombosis, von Willebrand disease, sickle cell disease, and other bleeding and clotting disorders—including rare conditions.
IHTC began with a vision for a center where patients and families affected by blood disorders could receive the best treatment. With extensive experience in hematologic disorders and depth of specialization in the field, our doctors, nurses, and specialists are focused on improving quality of life for our blood disorder patients and their families.
