Image Guided Surgery Program – Damien’s Story

Our Hybrid OR (operating room) is a collaboration between Radiology’s Dr. John Racadio, Surgeon-in-Chief Dr. Daniel von Allmen, and PHILIPS Medical Imaging. The team has been working together for several years to create their vision of a procedural room, incorporating Radiology Interventional techniques with PHILIPS imaging technology in an Operating Room (OR) environment.

Learn more about the IR and Surgery collaborative teamwork in the hybrid operating room, which is improving the outcome for patients like Damien.
