Healthcare Services and Programs
Certain operations and procedures work best when performing bloodless surgery. That's why the first step in finding out whether or not you're a candidate for this type of service is to determine if your specific procedure or surgery can be performed using blood conservation techniques.
Regardless of the reason a person may have for seeking a blood transfusion alternative, not every operation presents an ideal situation for a bloodless surgery. Certain types of operations and procedures are conducive to bloodless techniques. These include minimally invasive surgeries, such as arthroscopic joint repair and replacement. Other operations that would normally require a blood transfusion can be performed using bloodless medicine with special techniques and tools.
The Center for Blood Conservation at Grant is one of the only bloodless surgery hospitals in Ohio, and specializes in the following procedures:
- Breast Health
- Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery
- Emergency Medicine
- Family Practice
- General Surgery
- Internal Medicine
- Medical Oncology
- Obstetrics and Gynecology
- Otolaryngology (ear, nose, throat)
- Plastic Surgery
- Thoracic Surgery
- Trauma Surgery
- Vascular Surgery
A next step in determining whether or not you're a candidate is taking into consideration your overall health condition. Patients with certain blood disorders and medical conditions, for example, are not eligible for blood conservation surgery.
