Hybrid Procedures

Your Care Explained > Tests and Procedures : Hybrid Procedures

Brigham and Women’s Hospital is pioneering the development of new hybrid therapies for cardiac conditions.

Combining conventional open surgical procedures with minimally invasive ones, hybrid therapy offers safe, effective treatment while reducing post-operative pain and recovery time.

Our expertise has led to an operating suite that accommodates both interventional and surgical procedures. This unique suite is equipped with robotics and other innovative technology of a state-of-the-art cardiac operating suite, as well as the sophisticated imaging and other technology critical to the electrophysiology and catheterization laboratories. Patients with valve disease or aortic aneurysms often have coronary artery disease or arrhythmias as well.

Hybrid surgery is able to treat both conditions in a single procedure, necessitating only one hospitalization and one recovery period.
