Bridgeport Hospital’s new Hybrid Operating Room is almost three times the size of a standard operating room and includes an embedded catheterization lab. The permanently integrated technology and highly sophisticated imaging device can visualize very thin blood vessels with a remarkable degree of precision. The sterile, lead-lined surgical theater allows 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.
The Hybrid OR extends the capabilities of cardiologists, cardio-thoracic surgeons and vascular surgeons in working together on a variety of procedures including minimally invasive trans-catheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
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.
