Hybrid Operating Room

Our state-of the-art hybrid operating room, the first of its kind in Alaska, allows us to provide the highest quality cardiac, vascular and neurovascular care for elective procedures and in emergency situations.

With its innovative technologies, both traditional and minimally invasive procedures can be performed in combination or with other surgical services – all in the same room.

For minimally invasive procedures, it has a cardiac catheterization lab. The benefits of procedures that are done using this system include less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stays and a faster recovery than traditional surgical approaches.

The hybrid operating room’s biplane imaging system provides real-time views of blood vessels and tissue. Its three-dimensional technology allows for more precise diagnosis and treatment. For example, in an emergency situation such as a brain aneurysm, surgeons can use the biplane to instantly diagnose the location of the problem and perform life-saving surgery at the same time.
