Hybrid theatre

What is a hybrid theatre?

Spire Nottingham Hospital’s hybrid operating theatre contains a Siemens Artis Zeego robotic imaging system. Consultants can see live 3D images of the patient’s anatomy allowing them to more precisely plan and perform operations. 

This in-theatre imaging technology is used particularly for spinal, heart, vascular and neurological procedures.

Key benefits of a hybrid theatre

  • Shorter procedure time
  • Less invasive and painful surgery
  • Faster recovery time
  • More comfortable for the patient
  • Risk of complications lessened as keyhole surgery and more complex operations can both be performed in the same theatre

Other facilities at the hospital include:

  • Three laminar flow theatres – operating rooms with ventilation systems that prevent airborne bacteria from getting into open wounds, as well as reducing levels of bacteria on surgical instruments, surgeons and patients.
  • An intensive care unit
  • The latest diagnostic imaging facilities including:
    • a wide bore MRI which provides a less claustrophobic experience
    • a low dose radiation CT scanner
    • x-ray, ultrasound and mammography units
