Building the Future of Vascular Surgery

Beebe Healthcare is working to build the future of vascular surgery here in Lewes.

Future plans include the design, creation, and implementation of a hybrid operating room. This surgical theatre offers the latest in advanced imaging technology for vascular surgeons and allows patients to undergo both open surgery and endovascular or minimally invasive procedures in the same room. Complex imaging equipment allows surgeons to have real-time access and visibility of peripheral arteries within the body, while they are working to repair or bypass blockages.

Hybrid operating rooms are complex working environments where a team of surgeons, interventionalists, nurses, anesthesiologists, and radiology technicians work seamlessly together.

The vascular team at Beebe is working to create this surgical theatre space from the ground up. Having the surgical team involved in the design is one way Beebe is working to create the space to fit the team, instead of the other way around.

Vascular surgeons Dr. Sean Ryan, Dr. Carlos Neves, and Dr. Kevin Caldwell, have trained in hybrid operating rooms and are excited to bring this new space to the community. They provide expert care, close to home, for those living, working, and visiting Sussex County.
