Baptist opens a new Cardiovascular Surgical Suite. It's an advanced Hybrid Operating Room for minimally invasive cardiac and vascular surgery procedures.
Vascular Surgeon Charles O'Mara with Baptist Cardiovascular Surgery explains in this video that among many benefits for patients and physicians, the new Hybrid OR can offer state-of-the-art minimally invasive treatment.
Because the Hybrid OR at Baptist has both full radiology imaging and surgical capabilities, patients undergoing a minimally invasive procedure that is determined to require surgery will have the advantage of the surgeon being able to shift equipment and proceed, rather than moving to another operating room. For patients, it translates into a safer environment with the best opportunity for the desired clinical outcome.
