Bloodless Surgery Services

Tens of thousands of patients from the U.S. and abroad have received medical treatment and undergone highly complex procedures such as brain, open-heart, orthopedic and gastrointestinal surgeries without blood transfusions at Englewood Health. We do all types of major and minor surgery including orthopedic, neurosurgery, liver surgery, bariatric surgery, breast surgery, general surgery, spinal surgery, urologic surgery, gynecological surgery, and cardiac surgery. The only type of surgery we do not do is organ transplantation.

Before surgery, based on the results of a patient’s blood test, doctors may recommend medications and dietary supplements to ensure optimal levels of hemoglobin (an oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells). After surgery, blood loss will be minimized and blood production enhanced through medication, nutrition therapy, and technology, including blood salvage and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

All of our anesthesiologists also participate in the bloodless program and are intimately involved in all clinical aspects of patient blood management. We also offer a full range of medical and outpatient services.
