Hybrid Operating Room

North Shore Medical Center’s newest operating room is a hybrid suite that combines some of the latest surgical technology with the most sophisticated imaging capabilities.  The hybrid OR represents one more area in which North Shore Medical Center is setting the standard of care for health care providers in our community.

A Hybrid Operating Room Means Better Vascular Care

A new concept in operating room design allows vascular surgery patients to receive multiple levels of care within a single operating room.  The new Hybrid Operating Room/Vascular Suite is equipped with advanced imaging systems, an angiography system, and several high-definition flat-screen monitors needed for minimally invasive techniques such as angiography, CT scans – designed to provide clear and accurate visualization of small vessels, stents, catheters and guide wired during complex procedures.  Surgeons now have the ability to perform traditional, open surgery and minimally invasive, endovascular procedures on the same patient, at the same time, in the same place without having to move the patient.

Patient benefits may include:

  • Shorter procedure times
  • Much less radiation used during imaging
  • Reduced need for ICU care
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery
  • Mostly outpatient (same day procedures)

Some of the procedures include:

  • Carotid stenting
  • Thoracic aorta stent graft (TEVAR)
  • Endovascular repair of aorta-iliac occlusions/stenosis
  • Endovascular AAA repair (EVAR)
  • Angioplasty and stenting of leg arteries (above and below the knee)
  • Removing clot from leg veins
  • Renal (kidney) artery and visceral artery angioplasty and stenting

Open surgical bypasses

  • Fem - Pop
  • Aorto – Femoral
  • Axillo – Femoral
  • Carotid Endarterectomies
  • Open AAA repair
