An advantage of bloodless surgery is that it promotes better quality treatment. “The sur- geon ́s skills is the utter and most significant factor for the avoidance of blood loss“, says Dr. Benjamin J. Raichstain, director of a surgical clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. A South African legal journal points out that in certain cases, bloodless surgery without using blood can be “quicker, cleaner and less expensive“, and adds: “Undoubtedly, the postoperative treatment in many instances has proved more cost effective and less time consuming“. These are just a few of the reasons why some 180 hospitals worldwide have now adopted bloodless medicine and surgery pro- grammes. The advantages are numerous and our center has been engaged in bloodless surgery and gynaecology for more than thirty (30) years. There is enormous expertise in bloodless surgery and far too many incidents in our assets. We have worked with the relevant committees for hospitals many times that have aided us plenty and we have retained constant communication. Bloodless surgery is a distinct specialty of medicine and we should not underestimate or even take lightly, but rather benefit from it at the end.
