Shockey helped WVU Medicine (at Berkeley Medical Center) expand its surgical capacity with the addition of five new cutting edge, full service operating rooms.
In order to accommodate the latest innovative technology, the new operating rooms range from 600 to 921 square feet, making them much larger than traditional 380 to 450 square foot operating rooms.
Two of the new ORs support minimally invasive robotic technology called the da Vinci Intuitive Xi. This equipment enhances the technical skills of the surgeons and allows patients to heal faster with fewer complications and less down time. The hospital expects to have the da Vinci robot in house and operational by early 2020.
Some of the minimally-invasive, robotically-assisted procedures to be offered include kidney and bladder surgery, gynecological surgery, including no-stitch total hysterectomy, hernia repair, and other laparoscopic surgical procedures.
The expansion includes another new operating room dedicated to orthopedic surgical procedures, including anterior total hip replacement, and an OR dedicated to the integrated vascular thoracic Stryker iSuite.
The final new operating room is the neurosurgery iSuite that houses neurosurgical technology, including the Mazor X robot. Berkeley Medical Center is the first hospital in West Virginia to acquire the Mazor X to perform robotic spine surgery.
As part of the renovation, Shockey also performed HVAC upgrades to 2 existing ORs, and all finishes were upgraded in an existing corridor.
