Cardiac Services - Hybrid Operating Room
Kaweah Delta's hybrid OR is designed specifically for vascular and endovascular procedures. This technology provides Kaweah's surgeons the opportunity to perform intricate procedures on people with severe, life-threatening conditions.
NEW Hybrid Endovascular Operating Room
The hybrid Or gives surgeons the ability to perform traditional, open surgery and minimally invasive, endovascular procedures on the same patient, at the same time, in the same place. The OR technology provides surgeons continuous 3-D imaging and the opportunity to perform intricate procedures on people with severe, life-threatening conditions, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In addition to state-of-the-art surgical equipment, the hybrid OR also contains advanced imaging equipment needed for minimally invasive techniques – angiography, CT scans and MRI – providing clear and accurate visualization of small vessels, stents, catheters and guide wires during complex procedures.
Having the ability to perform imaging studies in the same room eliminates the need to move patients during a procedure and reduces the risk of infection.
Patients also benefit by:
• Shorter procedure times
• Less radiation used during imaging
• Reduced need for ICU care
• Shorter hospital stays
• Faster recover
