Hybrid OR

Sarasota Memorial surgeons perform thousands of operations each year using state-of-the-art technology, including complex hybrid procedures and minimally invasive robotic and percutaneous techniques.

Sarasota Memorial’s hybrid operating room – a specialized surgical suite equipped with a cardiac catheterization lab – allows our interventional cardiologists and cardiac and vascular surgeons to collaborate and perform advanced hybrid therapies – combinations of catheter-based, conventional, and less invasive surgical procedures  – and improve care for patients with multiple or highly complex heart conditions.

Robotic & Minimally Invasive Surgery
Robotic, endoscopic and laparoscopic surgical tools and techniques allow our cardiothoracic, cardiovascular and vascular surgeons to perform a wide range of cardiac, vascular and thoracic procedures through small keyhole-size incisions that require only a stitch or two, including:

  • Aortic valve surgery
  • Mitral valve surgery
  • Tricuspid valve surgery
  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)
  • Atrial septal defect closure, including patent foramen ovale
  • Atrioventricular canal defect (also called atrioventricular septal defect) surgery
  • Atrial fibrillation surgery (Maze procedure)
  • "Off-pump" coronary artery bypass surgery (without a cardiopulmonary bypass machine); also called minimally invasive direct coronary bypass
  • Saphenous vein harvest for coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Endoscopic saphenous vein harvest for coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Robotic cardiac surgery
  • Excision of myxomatous tumors
  • Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) for hyperhidrosis
  • Laparoscopic repair of large hiatal hernia
