Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery

Many procedures at the Heart and Vascular Institute at Abington Health result in little blood loss, so patients are less likely to need blood transfusions.

For those wanting to avoid exposure to donated blood and blood components, Abington Health’s Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery offers advanced blood conservation methods.

Avoiding Blood Transfusions

The bloodless medicine team supports patient choices and helps with planning for tests, surgery and inpatient care. Because Abington has the latest technology, heart patients wanting bloodless treatment are able to receive the highest quality medical and surgical care while also having their wishes understood and respected.
