STERIS, Siemens to Develop Hybrid Surgical Suites

June 11, 2009 - Surgical support and integration technologies company STERIS Corp. and Siemens Medical Solutions USA Inc. said they are collaborating to offer optimized vascular, cardiovascular and neurosurgical hybrid surgical suites. The collaboration was announced today at the Society of Vascular Surgeons annual meeting in Denver, Colo. Through this collaboration, Siemens will provide advanced information and interventional technologies, while STERIS will supply what it calls custom-designed HD 360° Suites, featuring LED surgical lighting and visualization systems as well as OR integration and equipment management solutions. STERIS will also provide expert room design and project management services using the company’s three-dimensional Room Builder software. The hybrid suites that result from STERIS and Siemens joint efforts will enable surgical and diagnostic teams to carry out a vast range of image-guided cardiovascular, vascular, and neurosurgical interventional procedures as well as open surgeries. “Working together, we can help facilities meet growing procedural demands and provide the technology that will integrate capabilities for new interventional procedures, minimally invasive surgeries and open procedures, all in the same space,” said Bill O’Riordan, vice president and general manager, STERIS Surgical Solutions. “This collaboration will also able to help healthcare providers embrace future surgical innovation with ease.” “As the needs of today’s surgical suite expand to accommodate both minimally invasive techniques and complex open surgical procedures within the same environment, state-of-the-art image-guidance technologies, such as our Artis zee family, including the first-to-market Artis zeego, are being incorporated into surgical workflow to improve clinical, operational, and financial efficiency,” said Claus Grill, vice president, cardiac, interventional/neuro, and X-ray systems, Siemens Healthcare. The Siemens-STERIS collaboration will deliver hybrid operating room solutions that enable healthcare facilities to improve workflow and streamline room planning and installation, the companies said.
