Break Out: Hybrid surgery room: technique & collaboration – Haga Teaching Hospital and Hyperbaric Medical Centre Rijswijk

November 15, 2018, 18:00 - 19:00

Hybrid surgery rooms are new facilities in large hospitals where the traditional “open” procedures are combined with radiological interventional techniques in order to reduce surgical harm and complications to the patients.

These theaters create new “space” of cooperation and communication for the workers in the different specialities and so create new challenges to the already existing high standards in surgical teams.

In the presentation the hybrid theaters are outlined and the functions explained and also the necessary communication is given attention

Dr. Bob Knippenberg MD PhD is consultant vascular surgeon and (co) initiator of the Hybrid Operation Theater in Teaching Hospital in The Hague. Currently he is working in the hyperbaric medical center in Rijswijk/The Hague in the treatment of complex wounds and especially diabetic wounds. He is also involved in the implementation of training surgical personnel from different specialities in hybrid operation rooms.
