Our ability to offer transfusion-free medicine is due to the capabilities technology provides. For example, we have surgical devices to minimize blood loss, such as electrocautery, harmonic scalpel, laser, and argon beam coagulators. Also, intra-operative and post-operative blood salvage collects and returns the patient's blood during surgical procedures in a closed circuit. We have more than board-certified physicians and surgeons who have made a special commitment to uphold the religious, health or personal wishes of those who desire transfusion-free health care.
