Developed for patients with cardiovascular conditions, the Hybrid OR at Riverside is the region's most advanced endovascular surgical suite and leverages multi-disciplinary resources to deliver:

  • Fewer surgeries
  • Safer procedures
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recoveries
  • Better outcomes

What the Hybrid OR can do for you

  • It's the only surgical suite in the region where patients can get diagnosed and treated in one visit, for less downtime and a speedier recovery.
  • Unique technology in the suite allows doctors across different specialties to work together case-by-case, in the best interest of each patient.
  • The most advanced imaging systems available provide quick and detailed information for shorter, more accurate treatment with substantially less X-ray exposure when compared to traditional devices.
  • The open and spacious environment, resulting from ceiling-mounted equipment, provides patients with the highest degree of comfort and safety.
  • Complex cases are more easily treated, since the suite is designed to handle both minimally invasive and open procedures.
  • For superior precision and control, all the equipment in the suite can be directly controlled by the surgical team.

Leading medicine on the cutting edge

Riverside Methodist is committed to finding the newest technologies to enhance patient care. In fact, the hospital has incorporated in-room cameras to the Hybrid OR to record and transmit surgeries so that specialists, residents and doctors in training can observe and contribute to procedures without being in the operating room, for a more efficient and private operating environment.
