Hybrid Cardiovascular Surgical Suite

Bob & Marjie Bennett Hybrid Cardiovascular Surgical Suite

The newly renovated and expanded Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute is home to three state-of-the-art cardiovascular operating rooms, including the innovative Bob & Marjie Bennett Hybrid Cardiovascular Surgical Suite.

The new Hybrid Cardiovascular Surgical Suite (Hybrid CVOR), is capable of supporting Hoag’s specially trained surgical team to provide:

  • Any trans-catheter technology for heart valve, including the revolutionary Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure – only available at Hoag Heart & Vascular Institute
  • Hybrid treatment of atrial fibrillation​ (via vein, not open heart)
  • Trans-aortic valve replacement (through a vein, not open heart)
  • Repair of abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms without an open incision (EVAR and TEVAR)
  • All endovascular procedures
  • Open heart surgery, if necessary

With the introduction of a Hybrid CVOR, cardiac surgery has taken a quantum leap forward. The new Hybrid CVOR at Hoag Hospital Newport Beach is the first operating room of its kind in Orange County and serves as an innovative approach in the delivery of advanced patient care.

That’s because a Hybrid CVOR combines the best elements of an operating room with the state-of-the-art imaging technology necessary for interventional heart and vascular procedures. 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.

The Hybrid Cardiovascular Surgical Suite 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 OR, the room can support a large team in combination with unique equipment. The suite also 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.

By combining first rate imaging capabilities within an advanced operating suite, Hoag cardiac surgeons have unprecedented flexibility in real time to do what’s best for the patient. This innovative environment also provides the potential for Hoag surgeons to revolutionize the way Hoag treats patients by integrating traditional cardiac surgery with endovascular surgery techniques and technology, further bridging the best of today with the latest advances of the future.

Patients benefit from Hoag’s new Hybrid CVOR in that they can have any type of heart procedure without changing locations for imaging, or different types of procedures. Easily accessible options and accuracy are key in successful cardiac outcomes, and Hoag’s new Hybrid CVOR provides both of these elements on a world-class level.
