What do you get when you combine a surgical operating room with a fully equipped cath lab? The state-of-the art hybrid OR at St.Vincent Heart Center.
Instead of treating valvular disease either with open-heart surgery, or staging procedures several weeks apart, they can now be accomplished at the same time. And this means lower risk and shorter recovery times for patients requiring bypass surgery.
The hybrid OR is also ideal for endograft and peripheral vascular procedures among others. But most important, the hybrid OR provides an ideal setting for St.Vincent Heart Center cardiologists and surgeons to work side-by-side — collaborating for the best outcomes for patients.
