Donating Your Own Blood
 
If you are concerned about needing blood during your surgery and are interested in donating your own blood before surgery, discuss this with your physician.
 
You may donate your own blood (autologous) before elective or planned surgery. Your physician can help to make these arrangements at the Donor Center. An order written by your physician is needed to donate your blood.
 
For more information, please call the IV Donor Center at (860) 545-2484.
