Bloodless Medicine & Surgery

Because of the increasing demand for transfusion-free medical care, Tampa General Hospital has established the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery. This innovative program is designed to provide state-of-the-art medical care for patients who choose not to accept blood transfusions or blood products.

While many patients request blood-free medical treatment based on religious beliefs, a growing number also choose bloodless treatment to reduce the risks of adverse reactions and blood-borne illnesses.

Tampa General's commitment to bloodless treatment is made possible by the surgeons, anesthesiologists, internists, nurses, technicians, and support staffs that are trained to provide quality medical care without the use of blood component therapy.

Bloodless care can be applied to nearly every medical and surgical specialty as shown from the following list of services we offer:
