Operating Room

10 State-of-the-Art Spaces

Ten technologically advanced operating rooms were designed specifically for orthopedic surgery, with sterility, efficiency and open space in mind.

Complete with video integration, the use of robotics and enhanced air filtration, each intraoperative experience can be optimized for success.

  • Efficiency: unique features, such as sliding entry doors, pass-through windows and intuitive floor plans, help minimize traffic and increase patient safety.
  • Sterility: A CLEANSUITE Operating Room Ceiling System directs airborne particles and contaminants away from the patient and staff while encompassing the room in HEPA-filtered air.
  • Technology: Advanced equipment allows the surgical team to better control instruments and view high-quality images of the procedure on magnified monitors. This technology also allows us to live stream surgeries to share across Orlando Health and around the world.

Sterile Processing

The Heart of the Hospital

Known as "the heart of the hospital," our Sterile Processing Department enables superior patient safety and care through meticulous cleaning, disinfecting and sterilizing of surgical instruments.

The 12,000-square-foot area is stocked with the best technology in sterilization equipment, including dedicated elevators, a cart washer, pass-through sterilization and computers at every workstation.

  • Decontamination: The process begins when a cart filled with used instruments and containers leaves the OR on a dedicated elevator and arrives in the decontamination area for cleaning and disinfection. Here, they undergo a meticulous cleaning process, which may involve manual scrubbing and the use of mechanical or ultrasonic cleaners.
  • Prep and Pack: Once the items are decontaminated, the instruments are prepped, packed and loaded into one of five pass-through steam sterilizers of V-Pro peroxide plasma sterilizers.
  • Sterile Storage: When the process is complete, the instruments are placed in sterile storage and returned to the OR on a dedicated elevator.

Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU)

Wake Without Worry

Before and after orthopedic surgery, patients are cared for in our 44-bed PACU by a team of highly trained critical care nurses specifically trained to meet the needs of orthopedic and spine patients.

Our nursing team is skilled in providing personalized attention to patients after receiving anesthesia. As part of your care, you can expect our nurses to:

  • Monitor your vital signs
  • Examine your surgical site
  • Check and maintain intravenous fluids
  • Provide any required care until discharge
