Dr. Anastasia Grivoyannis, MD is an assistant professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her area of clinical expertise is pediatric anesthesia, liver transplant anesthesia, and she is an expert in blood conservation methods.

Dr. Grivoyannis is a member of the Interdisciplinary Blood Management Program and of Perioperative Blood Management Services at Johns Hopkins.

She received her undergraduate degree in chemistry from Cornell University, where she also earned her medical degree. She finished 2 years of training in emergency medicine at the University of Washington, before completing residency in anesthesiology at the New York Presbyterian Hospital. The importance of blood resonated with her during residency and she started doing research in blood management, looking for methods that improve patient outcomes after excessive bleeding and coagulopathy caused by trauma, surgery, and associated transfusion. She completed a fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. There, she learned the importance of fresh whole blood in preventing coagulopathy in infants undergoing cardiac surgery. 

Dr. Grivoyannis' research is focused on methods to improve blood utilization and reduce unnecessary blood transfusion in pediatric resuscitation in an effort to improve patient outcomes. Her recent research and publications focus on blood conservation and bloodless medicine and surgery.

Among her many professional activities, Dr. Grivoyannis serves on the Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) and the Program Evaluation Committee (PEC) for the Johns Hopkins Hospital Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program. She also serves on the Johns Hopkins Hospital Transfusion Practice Committee (TPC). 

In addition to her academic appointment, Dr. Grivoyannis also intermittently serves as a field worker for Doctors Without Borders / Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). She has served in MSF projects in Syria, Jordan, Nigeria and Liberia. In 2019, she was named an Anesthesia Subject Matter Expert (SME) by the Johns Hopkins Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response (CEPAR) at the Center for Humanitarian Health. more
