Bloodless Medicine and Surgery 
 
"Bloodless" means medical or surgical treatment without the use of banked or stored allogenic blood or primary blood components. 
The Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Hahnemann University Hospital was established to meet the needs of patients who desire quality medical care while avoiding exposure to donated blood.

The growing number of persons who object to blood transfusions for religious or personal reasons has fueled the quest for medically acceptable alternatives. The Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery combines advanced medical technology with an experienced team of healthcare professionals to create an atmosphere of mutual understanding, trust and respect that promotes the delivery of high-quality care.

"Bloodless" means medical or surgical treatment without the use of banked or stored allogenic blood or primary blood components. Blood loss often occurs during surgery. A bloodless program tries to minimize blood loss by using special blood-conservation methods.

The Bloodless Strategy

The Hahnemann approach to bloodless medicine involves blood conservation devices, pharmaceuticals, meticulous surgical technique and a medical staff committed to ensuring the best possible outcome for every patient.
