Hybrid Operating Room

St. Rita's Hybrid Operating RoomSt. Rita's hybrid operating rooms deliver greater quality of care and better patient outcomes by providing the technology and equipment to perform minimally invasive procedures and open surgeries in the same space, using the same team of physicians and clinicians. These multifunctional rooms bring the technology to the patient, rather than wheeling the patient to the technology—eliminating the need to move from room to room during highly critical procedures.

Additionally, 3-D imaging technology provides high-resolution images of the heart and vascular system in real time, allowing surgeons to open blocked arteries, repair or replace damaged valves or remove stroke-causing blood clots through catheter-based, rather than open, procedures.

The hybrid OR may also be used for neurosurgery, orthopedics, urology, trauma surgery and general surgery.
