Bloodless medicine is an alternative to receiving blood transfusions during surgery. Many people prefer to not receive transfusions as this would go against their personal or religious beliefs. At Southwest Healthcare, our bloodless medicine program accommodates patients with these wishes.
Bloodless, or transfusion-free, means performing medical or surgical treatments without using banked (stored), allogenic blood or blood products. Blood loss often occurs during surgery. Our bloodless program works to minimize blood loss by using special blood conservation methods.
