In 2014 the Klinik Im Park opened a new hybrid operating room. The Klinik Im Park is among only six hospitals in Switzerland offering this cutting-edge technology. Hybrid operating rooms enable improved minimally invasive intervention techniques and even greater safety for patients.
What is a hybrid OR?
The word “hybrid” is of Greek origin and means “bundled”. A hybrid OR has the technical and hygienic equipment of an OR and is outfitted with highly accurate radiological imaging devices. The imaging capabilities in a hybrid OR far exceed those of the equipment in conventional ORs with mobile C-arms.
What are the advantages of a hybrid OR?
The hybrid technology enables intra-operative high definition imaging, thus laying the foundations for minimally invasive surgical procedures which necessitate extremely precise imaging of anatomical structures – for example, certain types of heart surgery. Higher patient safety can be guaranteed during demanding surgical procedures due to the additional options in the hybrid OR. Time-consuming relocations of patients, possibly even under anaesthetic, are done away with, which significantly improves safety and hygiene.
What does the hybrid OR mean for the patients?
The Klinik Im Park is only the sixth hospital in Switzerland to set up a hybrid OR. The new high-tech infrastructure provides interventional specialists with a suitable environment in which they can safely undertake the complex minimally invasive surgical procedures that are now possible. The hybrid OR means maximum safety for the patients during the operation thanks to the availability of cutting-edge medical technology.
