John Hostetler, world renowned authority on Amish religion and Professor of Anthropology at Temple University in Philadelphia, says in his book, Amish Society,  “The Amish believe that since God created the human body, it is God who heals.  However, nothing in the Amish understanding of the Bible forbids them from using modern medical services, including surgery, hospitalization, dental work, anesthesia, blood transfusions or immunization.”

The Amish will consent to transplantation if they believe it is for the well-being of the transplant recipient.
