The Centegra Health System Anemia Clinic was established in February 2013. The purpose of the Anemia Clinic is to screen patients with a hemoglobin level between 10.1 and 13 prior to having hip or knee surgery, with the objective being to help decrease the need for post-operative blood transfusions. Patients may be treated with injectable iron, epoetin or a combination of both products.
