In 1993, Saint Thomas West Hospital surgeons performed the region’s first endovascular surgical treatment of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. With a long-standing commitment to providing patients with the safest, most advanced surgical treatment options available, the hospital’s legacy continues with the opening of the Artis Zeego Hybrid operating room.
This operating room utilizes the latest surgical technology and equipment available, which allows physicians to perform procedures with greater precision and efficiency. In addition, physicians of varying specialties are able to work in unison to diagnose and treat patients simultaneously within the same operating suite. Patient benefits include reduced infections and faster recovery times.
The most advanced operating room in the region is now at Saint Thomas West Hospital.
