Blood Transfusions

Some surgeries may require blood transfusions. Your surgeon at Atlantic Health System will discuss this possibility with you. Occasionally, you may be able to donate your own blood and have it stored for your surgery. This is usually done three to four weeks prior to surgery. Your surgeon's office will instruct you how to make these appointments.

Please note that all blood and blood products are routinely screened for HIV (AIDS virus) and other contagious diseases.
