Cardiovascular Hybrid Suite
Is it a Cardiac Cath Lab or an Operating Room? It’s both. A one-stop-shop for heart patients.
From angioplasty and stent placements to coronary bypass, valve replacements and aortic repairs, the Cardiovascular Hybrid Suite at University Hospital offers the highest level of care from a team of UT Medicine cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and vascular surgeons.
It’s the combination of a standard operating room and a catheterization lab, providing immediate access to all equipment needed for any situation—without moving the patient.
It is one of the most advanced cardiovascular hybrid labs in the country and the first in San Antonio, and South Texas. A physician can treat a patient for a minimally invasive procedure and convert to traditional surgery, if needed, in a matter of seconds.
When a life is at risk, it’s all about saving precious time and maximizing patient safety. This state-of-the art suite represents our dedication to providing a higher level of care for all.
