Englewood Health is an internationally renowned center for patients and institutions seeking expertise in surgery without the use of blood transfusions. The vast majority all elective surgery performed at Englewood Hospital – including spine surgery – is performed without blood transfusions or the use of blood products. Studies indicate a direct link between bloodless surgery, shorter hospital stay, faster healing, and a lowered chance of transfusion-associated infection or disease. This makes surgery possible for many who cannot or do not want a blood transfusion.
