About Bloodless Medicine
For many patients, blood transfusion is not an option, whether for religious reasons or safety concerns. The Johns Hopkins Bloodless Medicine and Surgery team understands and respects this view. We are experts in patient blood management, improving health outcomes and creating peace of mind for those who seek the very best healthcare, without the use of blood or blood products.
Bloodless Medicine and Surgery: What You Need to Know | Steven Frank, M.D.
Dr. Steven Frank, medical director of the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Johns Hopkins, discusses why patients choose bloodless medicine and surgery, the benefits, what surgical procedures can be performed without a foreign blood transfusion and why so many patients choose Johns Hopkins for their bloodless health care needs.
Our experts work closely with specialists throughout the Johns Hopkins Hospital to ensure safe bloodless healthcare for both children and adults in many areas.
A wide variety of patient blood conservation methods and techniques are available through our program. These techniques are FDA-approved and have been shown to significantly improve health outcomes.
Not every technique is appropriate for every patient. Careful decisions are made based on your preferences and healthcare needs. Above all, your wishes are respected.
