Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center
Bloodless Medicine at Sharp Chula Vista
Surgery on your terms.
When it comes to having surgery, your comfort and peace of mind are essential. We understand and respect your choice to avoid the use of blood transfusions during your surgical procedures.
You are in the best of hands.
The Bloodless Medicine and Surgery Center at Sharp Chula Vista is the only one of its kind in San Diego County. Led by our medical director, Dr. Hugo Barrera, our surgeons have successfully performed open-heart surgery, joint replacement surgery and other complex bloodless procedures without the use of donor blood.
You will receive assistance and support before and after surgery from our bloodless center manager, who has extensive experience supporting patients, like you, who have chosen bloodless medical services.
Our entire bloodless team — including specially trained nurses, social workers and pastoral counselors — is committed to your personal needs and health concerns. We take pride in your trust and are dedicated to providing a health care experience that works for you.
