One of the world’s most technologically advanced combined operating rooms and imaging centers.

AdventHealth’s InnovatOR (IOR) Suite is one of the world’s most technologically advanced operating rooms, and it’s a centerpiece of the Neuroscience Institute at AdventHealth Orlando. Its purpose is twofold – to provide the region’s best clinical setting for interventional neurosurgeries and to serve as the perfect place for pioneering minds and partnering organizations to innovate and unlock the mysteries of the human brain.

The IOR is made up of two operating suites featuring an exceptionally powerful and precise 18,000-pound MRI that travels between rooms to provide real-time imaging of surgery-in-progress. Thanks to this new technology, patients no longer have to be transported to a different area for post-surgery scanning. A surgeon can check for any issues while the patient is still on the operating table dramatically reducing both the chance of infection and the need for additional surgeries.
