Anticoagulation Care Overview

The board-certified anticoagulation care providers at Hattiesburg Clinic offer specialized treatment for patients who are at risk of blood clots and have been prescribed anticoagulation (blood thinning) therapy by their physician. They work with patients and physicians to achieve optimal outcomes. By engaging in education, medication monitoring, coordinating care plans and comprehensive patient counseling, these providers ensure the safe and successful management of anticoagulation therapy.

Common reasons for patients to use anticoagulant medication include:

  • Artificial heart valves
  • Atrial fibrillation (irregular heart beat)
  • Coagulation disorders
  • Following a heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Treatment or prevention of deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in a large vein, most commonly in the leg) or pulmonary embolus (blood clot in the lungs)
