Florida Hospital's Institute for Surgical Advancement

Bridging the Gap Between Medicine and Innovation

With our world-class faculty and our commitment to the newest technology, we are always ahead of the curve.

Five Reasons that make us a Catalyst for Surgical Advancement.

1 / Leaders

Physicians within the Institute for Surgical Advancement meet the following criteria

ISA physicians are thought leaders in their field, specializing in advanced procedures with a desire to teach, innovate and advance their science while producing superior clinical outcomes. These physicians maintain busy clinical practices while they look for opportunities to innovate, educate, research and publish.

2 / Resources

Our Physicians have the latest tools at their fingertips

Innovator Suite

The InnovatOR Suite (IOR) at Florida Hospital Orlando was developed to facilitate a clinical environment which supports education, collaboration and innovation. The IOR consists of two operating suites from IMRIS, featuring an exceptionally powerful and precise, 18,000-pound IMRIS 3T MRI that can travel between rooms to provide real-time imaging of surgeries. Utilizing this cutting-edge technology, our patients do not have to be transported to a different part of the hospital for post-surgery scanning with the surgeon performing the procedure while ensuring that any issues are resolved while the patient is still on the operating table. The benefits to this include the reduction in risk of infection while dramatically reducing the probability of additional surgeries.

There is complete a/v integration throughout the facility with advanced media services including production, capture and broadcast available in these spaces. An area is also allocated for breakout sessions, to ensure further collaboration and networking.

Training and Simulation

The Florida Hospital Nicholson Center at Health Village consists of a 3,000-square-foot facility with a 12-station Surgical & Clinical Training Lab. It is conveniently located adjacent to the Florida Hospital Orlando campus in the heart of the city’s growing medical community. This location is convenient to the downtown area and offers a more intimate configuration, of its larger sibling site at Florida Hospital Celebration.
