Hybrid Operating Room
A Hybrid Operating Room for Minimally Invasive Cardiovascular Care
Construction is underway to build a Hybrid Operating Room that will be almost three times the size of a standard operating room and include an embedded catheterization lab. The permanently integrated and highly sophisticated imaging tools can visualize very thin blood vessels with a remarkable degree of precision. The sterile, lead-lined surgical theater will allow cardiologists, vascular and cardiac surgeons to work collaboratively to perform minimally invasive procedures with greater precision, supplanting the need for high-risk, major open surgeries.
Bridgeport Hospital is dedicated to offering patients safer procedures and improved outcomes in the Hybrid Operating Room with less trauma, less scarring, faster rehabilitation and a more positive overall patient experience while staying close to home. Outcomes are better because of greater precision and shorter recovery periods.
