Hybrid Operating Room
One of the treatment options at Parkwest Medical Center combines the best of a traditional surgical suite with large imaging equipment such as real time X-ray and CT in a sterile setting. The hybrid OR allows less invasive, endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms in the chest and abdomen via catheters placed in the arteries in the groin.
Covenant Health is the first health system in East Tennessee to offer this innovative procedure for replacing heart valves for patients with life-threatening aortic stenosis who cannot undergo heart surgery. The risks and recovery time associated with TAVR are much less in comparison.
The high performance heart team at Parkwest has received extensive and innovative training allowing them to provide patients with an experienced outlook on their medical conditions.
