Hybrid Operating Room

Hybrid Operating Room

University Hospital's hybrid operating room combines the functions of a catheterization lab with the surgical functions of an operating room, allowing surgeons and cardiologists to perform both open and minimally invasive procedures in the same room. The advanced facility prevents patients from needing multiple procedures, and it helps assure that they benefit from the collaborative talents of MU's cardiovascular care team.
