A hybrid O.R. reduces the invasiveness of traditional surgical procedures – resulting in shorter recovery times, smaller incisions, less stress on the heart, and less trauma and discomfort for patients.
At the QEII, a variety of specialists will work together in the hybrid O.R. Patients will receive rapid access to innovative care with diagnosis, treatment and intervention occurring simultaneously.
This is especially important when treating trauma patients or if an emergency situation arises in the O.R. – patients will not need to be transferred between health centre floors and care teams, saving critical time when it matters most.
