ORLANDO, Fla. — AdventHealth is using technology to help improve the lives of patients and make surgery better for doctors.

Da Vinci 5 is a next generation surgical tool and the future of robotic surgery, according to a new release.

“At AdventHealth, we pride ourselves on being leaders in health care innovation,” said Amanda Maggard, CEO of AdventHealth Celebration. “Bringing this technology right here to Celebration allows us to provide leading-edge treatment that’s convenient and close to home.”
