Bloodless spine surgery is designed to minimize blood loss and avoid blood transfusions during surgery and recovery. Scientific evidence show patients do better post-surgically when they don’t require blood transfusions during surgery.
“His surgeries might be complex, but Dr. Brisson’s technique is one that reduces the amount of blood loss and therefore he does not routinely need to transfuse patients. The “bloodless” approach is obtained by the meticulous handling of muscle and tissue as well as the venous and arterial system he comes in contact with when performing most surgeries.” – Theresa Last Name and role.

Dr. Brisson holds a Certificate of Recognition from the Bloodless Medicine and Surgery Institute (BMSI). His knowledge, years of surgical experience and detail-oriented approach minimizes blood loss during surgery.
“As an operating room nurse for 30 years I continue to be extremely impressed by Dr. Paul Brisson’s exceptional surgical skills, technique, and judgment. Dr. Brisson exemplifies all of the advantages of a virtually ‘bloodless’ surgery where essentially little to no blood is lost during the operation because of his meticulous surgical skills. His professionalism and genuine compassion in comprehensive patient care are second to none and I consider myself privileged to have worked with him.”
