Since 1998, the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Allegheny General Hospital has provided quality health care for patients who request treatment without the use of blood or blood products.
Whether due to religious convictions or concerns over the safety of blood transfusions, a growing number of people in our country are expressing an interest in bloodless medicine programs. AGH’s comprehensive center is a national leader, providing highly complex surgical procedures, such as organ transplantation, brain, vascular, gynecological, cardiac, orthopaedic and gastrointestinal surgery, without the necessity of transfusion.
The Center relies on the expertise of physicians and other health care professionals who keep abreast of current developments in transfusion-free medicine in order to provide skilled, respectful care to all patients.
When selecting a health care team, experience counts. Allegheny General's hospital-wide Bloodless Medicine & Surgery program was established well over a decade ago, and has successfully treated thousands of patients from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and beyond.
