Why Give to the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery?
Using a team approach, the staff at the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery takes the time to learn about each patient’s needs and desires. We work with every patient to make sure that his or her wishes with regard to the many options available to patients who desire to avoid blood transfusions are understood and incorporated into a personalized plan of care for the patient.
Our skilled physician-scientists decide which of the hundreds of leading doctors and surgeons at Johns Hopkins is the right fit for each patient, and we help to ensure the surgical and medical teams understand the patient’s wishes. Our mission at the Center is to identify treatment options and to make them available to anyone who desires the world’s best medical care, while avoiding a transfusion.

These advances are being made possible with the help of individuals, like you, who give their philanthropic support so that top notch medical care is available to all who wish to be treated in accord with their conscience or beliefs.
