Hybrid Operating Room

Integrating X-ray imaging into surgery.

The Hybrid Operating Room (OR) at Palmetto Health Richland is the integration of a surgical OR with an advanced X-ray imaging system. Our Hybrid OR gives our physicians the flexibility to finish different procedures – from open-heart surgeries to stenting coronary arteries – without moving between rooms or discharging patients at our Columbia, South Carolina, health care system.

A major component of the Hybrid OR is the Siemens Artis Zeego-Q – the first and only of its kind in South Carolina. This system, Siemens’ most modern X-ray system, provides high quality images for the operative team during surgery to allow for better visualization.

Benefits of the Hybrid OR  include:

  • New capacity – The Hybrid OR gives the hospital additional capacity. Since it will be available in addition to cardiac catherization labs, there will be an opportunity to use it for operative procedures.
  • Flexibility – A Hybrid OR also gives surgeons the flexibility to finish different procedures – from open-heart surgeries to stenting coronary arteries – without moving between rooms or discharging patients.
  • Enhanced patient safety – Everything can occur in one room, emergencies or complications can be handled in one area without putting a patient's safety at risk.
  • Time and long-term cost savings – Patients will be able to have their surgery at one time instead of over a period of days.
