The London Clinic, Harley Street, Hybrid Operating Theatre
The London clinic is one of the UK’s largest private hospitals. Located in the heart of London’s world famous medical district it is the first hospital to have hybrid theatres. Hybrid operating theatres combine the surgical capacity of traditional operating rooms with the imaging capabilities of a catheterisation lab.
The trust required specialist hybrid operating theatre doors for its new hybrid operating suite. The hybrid theatre provides the surgical technology to enable surgeons to switch between open vascular surgery and endovascular surgery as necessary, with full real-time imaging support.
Dortek's hygienic operating theatre doors were installed in theatre areas with x-ray protection to accommodate x-ray equipment. Doors were also automated to allow staff to open and close them without touching to reduce the risk of infection. Dortek hybrid operating theatre doors can combine a number of key properties all in one hygienic door. Whether its x-ray rated, automated, fire rated, waterproof or hermetically sealing sliding, these doors were a versatile solution for these new breed of hybrid operating theatres.
