James Guarrera, MD, Interim Chief of Service
University Hospital provides the option of bloodless surgery to all patients who wish to avoid the use of blood transfusions during surgical procedures. Our team of physicians, nurses and other health professionals provides care across the full spectrum of services, utilizing the latest bloodless techniques for a wide range of elective and emergency procedures. The team is committed to the concept of bloodless surgery and medicine and will honor the wishes of patients requesting this type of treatment. The option of bloodless surgery should be discussed with the individual physician who will be performing the procedure so the appropriate education and preparation can be made.
