Hybrid OR

A new Hybrid OR – the first of its kind in Southern Nevada

The Hybrid OR at Sunrise Hospital is designed for certain high-tech heart procedures available now and in the future. The room, which features new surgical equipment, allows appropriate cardiac cath procedures and surgeries to be performed in the same operating room, which can save vital time. Procedures on adults and children will be performed in Sunriseʼs Hybrid OR.

Until recently, the only way to get a new heart valve was to have open heart surgery. Now that has changed, and Sunrise Hospital is offering a new procedure to patients in the hospitalʼs Hybrid OR. The procedure, known as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), allows patients to undergo aortic valve replacement through a small incision in the skin. It is a state-of-the-art treatment for aortic valve stenosis. The TAVR procedure may not be used on all patients, but for the appropriate patient it offers a minimally invasive treatment which allows for better outcomes and quicker patient recovery.
