Blood Management Services & Treatments

We use the most advanced blood management techniques available, including: 
  • CardioPAT – An autotransfusion system that collects, washes and returns the patient's blood during and after cardiac surgery. Patients receive their own high-quality blood with a reduced chance of infection 
  • Cell saver or blood salvage – Cleans and saves your blood during surgery and puts it back in your body 
  • DaVinci® surgical system – Robot-assisted surgery makes smaller cuts, resulting in less blood loss 
  • Minimally invasive surgery – Reduces blood loss, pain and time in the hospital, and can lead to a quicker recovery
  • TEG analyzer – This advanced technology uses special software to analyze the patient's blood during and after surgery. The results help the surgeon lower the risk of bleeding and determine the best treatment at the time of care
