Sanford Announces Futuristic Operating Rooms

Sanford Announces Futuristic Operating Rooms
SIOUX FALLS, SD - It's called the operating room of the future. And Sanford Health is making room to make upgrades.

Four years ago, Sanford Health opened what's called a hybrid operating room; it's a surgical suite where patients can be diagnosed and treated in one visit, which means a speedier recovery. But as we all know, technology is always changing. 

Monday, Sanford Health announced improvements along with the addition of up to three more hybrid surgical suites at the new Sanford Heart Hospital, which will open in a year. The technology looks futuristic and according to heart surgeons, it is. The hybrid operating room also uses the most advanced imaging systems available and for patients that means less x-ray exposure. Sanford Vascular Surgeon Dr. Greg Schultz says it's technology that can save those who couldn't have been saved before.

“This type of technology will allow us to treat very complex aneurism patients with what's called bran graph technology and they're not candidates for these big open operations. So to me, we are offering hope for people who don't have hope,” Schultz said.

The surgical suites that will be home to this technology in Sanford's new heart hospital will be the largest operating rooms they've built at 1,000 square feet.
