Who Is A Candidate for The Hybrid OR?

At USMD Hospital at Arlington, our team utilizes the Hybrid OR to treat a wide variety of conditions and perform many highly complex and advanced surgical procedures. The Hybrid OR is well-equipped to handle advanced oncology and vascular surgeries. Procedures, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement, endovascular aneurysm repair, and stent graft placement, are typically performed in the Hybrid OR. Patients requiring Hybrid OR surgeries in DFW should consult their physicians before surgery to determine if this minimally invasive surgical option is right for them.

What Are The Benefits of The Hybrid OR?

USMD Hospital at Arlington's Hybrid OR allows patients to be treated with multiple procedures at the same time, which allows for less chance of surgical risk and a shorter recovery period. If complications arise from a minimally invasive procedure, the procedure can quickly and effectively be converted into a more traditional, open procedure. Patients across North Texas can take advantage of our facility's highly advanced technologies, including our Hybrid OR and our interventional radiology technology.

What Can Be Expected During Hybrid OR Procedures?

A hybrid operating room represents the pinnacle of surgical technology, combining traditional surgical resources with advanced imaging capabilities, all within a single surgical suite. This innovative approach allows for both traditional open surgeries and minimally invasive procedures, like endovascular or robotic surgery, to be performed simultaneously or in immediate succession. As a patient, you can expect a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, radiologists, and nurses to be involved in your care, providing unparalleled expertise and real-time decision-making. The availability of high-resolution imaging tools directly in the operating room allows for real-time modifications, potentially resulting in more accurate surgeries, decreased invasiveness, and expedited recovery times.

Each individual's experience will vary based on the complexity of the procedure, overall health, and the body's healing response. Communication with your healthcare team is essential to understanding the specifics of your surgery and managing expectations.

What Kinds of Procedures Are Performed in a Hybrid OR?

It is important to discuss all of the potential risks and benefits so that you can make an informed decision about your care.
