The second floor of the new Stanford Hospital is home to the interventional platform — three acres of integrated surgical, procedural and imaging space, built with the most advanced technologies available today and the flexibility to add the innovations of tomorrow. The interventional platform brings together 20 operating rooms (ORs), 2 hybrid ORs, 8 interventional, radiology and image-guidance rooms, 3 MRIs, 3 CTs and 1 intra-operative MRI.
The ability to image patients during surgery is one of the most anticipated capabilities of the new hybrid ORs. An intra-operative MRI located within the sterile surgical field allows physicians to see real-time images during complex, multi-step procedures for immediate attention, reducing the need for follow-up surgeries.
The interventional platform brings together multiple surgical and procedural specialists —cardiologists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists and pulmonologists — into one common area. The space is further integrated with a centralized pre-operative and post-operative prep and recovery that allows for coordinated patient care throughout the surgical process.
