An autologous blood donation is when a person donates blood for their own use, prior to a scheduled surgery. Many doctors will ask you to donate a unit or two for yourself if you are undergoing a medical procedure. This will ensure that you receive your own blood, guaranteeing the best compatibility, as well as lessen the impact on the blood supply itself.
This process does require a prescription and is not available at all our blood donation centers.
The process cannot be performed within 72 hours of your scheduled surgery.
We can ship to most hospitals; however, you may be responsible for shipping and processing fees if the hospital is outside our network.
To make an appointment please call your nearest donation center.
