Children’s National Opens 7 New Operating Rooms

Ribbon Cutting 2011- Opening of 7 New Operating Rooms

The ORs have several unique features to facilitate the innovative surgical procedures. One OR is designed to accommodate robotic surgery for urological and other types of surgeries. A hybrid operating room allows radiologists and surgeons to act as a team and perform minimally invasive surgical procedures. Another room will utilize intra-operative MRI imaging that shows real-time images of targeted tissue areas during a procedure.

The audio-visual integration of the new ORs will expand visual-streaming and teaching to the Nulsen Family Media Room on the main campus and to other sites across the world, so that families will know exactly what it is happening. This technology supports the teaching and training efforts of future generations of medical care providers around the world.
