Many patients, whether for religious reasons or safety concerns, elect not to receive blood transfusions during their treatment. This approach is known as “bloodless medicine.

In a free health seminar, the Johns Hopkins Bloodless Medicine and Surgery team will offer an in-depth look at bloodless medicine: how it works, what surgical procedures can be performed bloodlessly, and how it can lead to quicker recovery times and better outcomes among patients.
