Bloodless Medicine Clinic Opens at Jackson Memorial Hospital

Jackson Health System has opened a bloodless medicine clinic, catering to those who are opposed to receiving blood transfusions - either because of religious convictions, safety concerns or other personal reasons. The clinic, which Jackson Memorial Hospital officially opened on October 23 in Ryder Trauma Center at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center, will be run by a medical team with expertise in bloodless surgical techniques.


Bloodless medicine is an approach used to manage diseases and conditions without the use of blood products or transfusions from a donor during surgery. Some of the techniques used include performing minimally invasive procedures or saving a patient's own blood and using during surgery by reinfusion.


Led by Mauricio Lynn, MD, a UM/Jackson trauma surgeon and Director of the Bloodless Surgery Center, the staff at Jackson's bloodless clinic will assist patients with their medical needs. When necessary, the patients will be referred to UM/Jackson specialists in a variety of disciplines with an expertise in bloodless medicine and surgical techniques.
