Cellsaver Autotransfusion Machine Surgery
Autotransfusion (Cellsaver)

Autotransfusion Services are the perfect option in any* surgery where there is a potential for blood loss.


Also known as Cellsaver, Autotransfusion is performed with a machine that collects, processes and returns blood. Blood is collected from the surgical field via suction tubing in a sterile reservoir. Once the blood in the reservoir reaches a certain level, it is then washed and processed in the machine's centrifuge to remove any particles or anticoagulant. Once processed, it is emptied in a sterile blood transfer bag and returned to you. 

Autotransfusion procedures are safe, and eliminate the possibility of having a transfusion reaction or disease transmission, as you are receiving your own blood back.

At Suncoast, we understand some of our patients have different needs for various reasons. We can help you receive your own blood back during surgery using a process that is accepted by your faith.

Platelet Gel Therapy

Platelet Gel therapy, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF), Autologous Platelet Concentrate (APC), or GPS® Platelet Concentration, is an autologous (using your own blood) procedure that utilizes growth factors present in your own blood to help speed up the progression of your healing after a surgery. 

Platelet Gel dramatically decreases the chance of infection, swelling and bruising, thus increasing the rate of your healing process by as much as 80%. Many studies have been done that prove its effectiveness in healing and regeneration in various procedures, Platelets, while known for their clotting abilities, also contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue regeneration/healing in the affected area as well as cellular reproduction.

Autologous Platelet Gel has proven to be highly effective in healing wounds, including chronic non-healing wounds. The application is simple and takes a total time of 20 minutes. We begin by drawing 20-55 cc of blood, and then process it in our centrifuge machine to get the platelet concentrate (8-10 x baseline and 5 x WBC baseline) which is then combined with a thrombin mixture that turns into a gelatinous substance (Biological Active Tissue Graft) and then is applied directly to your site of treatment.

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate

Bone marrow is a readily available source of undifferentiated  and progenitor cells in the body - these are cells that have yet to develop into a specific cell type with a specific purpose. When applied to an injury or surgical site, these cells develop into cells that have growth factors necessary for healing and reducing inflammation.


With the use of BMAC, significant beneficial healing progress and successful bone grafting can be seen in many different procedures, including total hip replacements, fusions, fractures & non-unions and help to heal after significant trauma to bones.


For smaller injuries or affected areas with smaller surgical sites, Platelet Gel Therapy is recommended.

Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy

Abbreviated for Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy, HIPEC is a procedure used to ensure adequate elimination of cancer cells following a surgical procedure to remove cancer. The HIPEC perfusion machine heats and perfuses chemotherapy medication throughout your surgical site to help eliminate the any remaining cancer cells following your surgery to help prevent a recurrence of the disease.
