Royal Philips Electronics and Steris Corp have announced their collaboration to provide hybrid operating rooms for open and minimally invasive cardiovascular surgical procedures.
The new ORs will incorporate Philips cardiovascular x-ray systems and Steris HD 360° Suites technologies and design services to allow clinicians to treat patients within a single operating suite.
The companies hope the collaboration will help hospitals as they reconfigure operating rooms to accommodate a wide range of current and future surgical technologies and procedures. The new ORs will enable surgical and diagnostic teams to perform various image-guided interventional radiology procedures including cardiovascular, vascular, cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, and orthopedics.
The relationship will also provide hospitals with opportunities for surgical innovation and improved infection prevention programs.
