Operating room of the future - now open at Hoag
surgery has taken a quantum leap forward with the introduction of the Hybrid Operating Room (Hybrid OR). A new
concept in delivering advanced patient care, a Hybrid OR combines the best
elements of the operating room with state-of-the-art imaging technology
necessary for interventional heart and vascular procedures.

Bennett Hybrid Cardiovascular OR (CVOR) at Hoag Hospital Newport
Beach is the first operating room of its kind in Orange County. Hoag’s Hybrid
CVOR will enable advanced diagnostic imaging and surgical procedures to be
performed simultaneously in the same room. This will result in safer treatment,
shorter hospital stays, faster recoveries and improved outcomes.
CVOR is unique in its design as well as the equipment and advanced navigational
technology in the room. At more than twice the size of a conventional standard
OR, the room can support a large team in combination with unique equipment. The
room offers technology that has been specially designed for Hoag, including a
Siemens Artis Zeego robotic imaging system with 3D and 4D reconstruction and
visualization software for real time navigation through the body, large digital
display screens for video, still imaging, video integration for
teleconferencing and 2-way video conferencing anywhere in the world.

the world trained as both a cardiovascular surgeon and an interventionalist who
can combine highly advanced, minimally invasive interventional procedures with
open surgical procedures.
technology is and will shape the future of cardiac surgery just as how smart
phones and tablets are changing the way we communicate in an increasing
technological environment,” says Dr. Raney. “Combining first rate imaging
capabilities within an operating room gives us unprecedented flexibility in
real time to do what’s best for the patient. It’s also a tremendous opportunity

without changing locations for imaging or different types of procedures –
easily accessible options and accuracy are key in cardiac cases and Hoag’s new
Hybrid CVOR provides both of these elements on a world-class level.
