Hybrid cath/surgical suite

Our hybrid catheterization/surgical suite combines the advantages of two worlds in one flexible space:

  • The high-definition imaging capabilities of a catheterization lab
  • The advanced surgical equipment of a full cardiac operating room

Hybrid catheterization/surgical suites: advanced cardiac technology

Hybrid cardiac catheterization/surgical suites offer the capability to do diagnostic and surgical intervention in one space. This provides a higher level of efficiency and safety for certain high-risk procedures. Our specialized suites provide an environment for optimal patient outcomes by fostering collaborative treatment planning and options.

Procedures we perform in these suites include:

  • Advanced aortic aneurysm repairs
  • Peripheral vascular procedures
  • Pacemaker and defibrillator lead extractions
  • Certain types of cardiac surgery
  • Transcatheter Valve Therapy

Benefits of hybrid catheterization/surgical suites

Hybrid catheterization/surgical suites can provide unique and innovative benefits to physicians and patients:

  • Rapid response. We can diagnose you and then offer immediate surgical treatment, without delay or moving to a different room or area of the hospital.
  • Proximity. A hybrid cath lab has all the equipment for both catheterization and surgical procedures in one suite, so physicians can act quickly and improve patient outcomes.
  • Accuracy. Surgeons have the ability to view their work immediately following surgery by performing an angiogram, which allows them to make sure grafts are in place and blood is flowing properly.
