Hybrid Operating Room

The innovative Ronald and Helen Lefcourt Hybrid Operating Room merges the latest imaging technology of a radiology suite with the amenities of a traditional operating room.

The availability of imaging equipment means physicians can view a surgical area on high-definition monitors to perform advanced, image-guided cardiac, vascular, and neurosurgical procedures. And the state-of-the-art operating room setting allows surgeons to safely transition from a minimally-invasive to an open procedure without moving the patient, allowing surgeons to respond more effectively to intricate cases. This provides a high level of patient safety for those undergoing complex procedures.

The hybrid operating room also enables surgeons from various specialties to work together as it houses all the latest tools and technology needed for both minimally invasive procedures and for open surgery. Surgeons can even perform two procedures at the same time if the need arises.

Conditions Treated

Specific conditions that can be treated in the Hybrid OR include:

  • Aortic stenosis, a condition characterized by an aortic valve that does not fully open

  • Coronary artery disease, a narrowing of blood vessels that flow into the heart

  • Aneurysms of the chest and abdomen

  • Stenting of arteries including: carotid, femoral, and iliac

  • Revascularization of arteries of the limbs and various organs

  • Neurosurgical vascular conditions¬†¬†
