Dr. Sidonio's research interests are in thrombosis and hemostasis. His focus is on von Willebrand disease (VWD) particularly in the setting of menorrhagia. His data has shown that it is cost effective to screen for VWD in all adolescents that present with menorrhagia prior to starting oral contraceptive pills. He is hoping to build collaborations across the department to better manage VWD associated menorrhagia with novel therapies. His current clinical research projects include evaluating predictors of bleeding in children with von Willebrand disease undergoing tonsillectomy in an effort to further reduce the rate of delayed post tonsillectomy hemorrhage. He will be both in the pediatric hematology clinic evaluating benign hematology referrals and in the hemophilia treatment center caring for the many children with hemophilia and VWD in the middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky region.
