The concept of a hybrid operating room is new to health care and is an advanced procedural space that takes a traditional operating room and combines it with an image guided interventional suite. This new operating room allows McLaren Greater Lansing to perform complex surgeries for patients in the Lansing community.

“Surgeries performed in the hybrid operating room have several advantages over conventional operating rooms,” said Majid Mughal, MD, cardiologist at McLaren Greater Lansing. “Benefits can include higher procedure accuracy, less operating time, and less risk of hemorrhage during transportation between radiology departments and operating suites.”

Hybrid operating rooms allow for minimally invasive repair of heart valves and treatment of arrhythmias, aortic aneurysms, and coronary arteries. There are a number of cardiac and vascular procedures performed in a hybrid operating room, including:

Hybrid operating rooms provide flexibility in what surgeries can be performed, and the way they are designed is safer for advanced surgeries.

“Utilizing a hybrid operating room in various ways directly impacts patient safety,” said Dr. Mughal. “Everything can occur in one room; emergencies or complications can be handled in one spot without putting a patient’s safety at risk. Operating room staff does not have to be relocated for multi-faceted procedures, physicians have state-of-the-art imaging devices for better visualization, and improved safety prevents unnecessary operations.”

The hybrid operating rooms at the new McLaren Greater Lansing are one of the ways that they are providing high−quality care to the community.
