Blood transfusions can have a serious impact on the immune system, lowering your ability to fight off illness, allergic reactions, and inflammatory responses.
Blood transfusions s hock the immune system, introducing new elements at a time when the body is already vulnerable. Bloodless surgery reduces the risk of post-op infection, inflammation, and other complications.

The cost of bloodless surgery to hopsitals is much lower than traditional surgery, and there are far fewer risks involved.
