The innovative Ronald and Helen Lefcourt Hybrid Operating Room at Englewood Hospital merges the latest imaging technology of a radiology suite with the amenities of a traditional operating room. The availability of the Siemens Artis Zee imaging equipment means physicians can view a surgical area on high-definition monitors to perform advanced, image-guided cardiac, vascular, and neurosurgical procedures. And the state-of-the-art operating room setting with Skytron Surgical Lights & Skytron Equipment Booms allows surgeons to safely transition from a minimally-invasive to an open procedure without moving the patient, allowing surgeons to respond more effectively to intricate cases. This provides a high level of patient safety for those undergoing complex procedures.
The hybrid operating room also enables surgeons from various specialties to work together as it houses all the latest tools and technology needed for both minimally invasive procedures and for open surgery. Surgeons can even perform two procedures at the same time if the need arises.
