When surgery is the recommended course of treatment, doctors at Saint Peter's University Hospital may use a variety of state-of-the-art technologies and techniques appropriate for the patient and the procedure to minimize blood loss, such as intraoperative cell salvage, which calls for cleaning blood that remains in constant circulation. Following surgery, blood loss is minimized and blood production enhanced through medication, nutrition therapy and the use of technology. Blood also can be collected postoperatively from the patient and processed without leaving the patient's body. Learn more about Saint Peter’s Bloodless Medicine program.
