What is Minimally Invasive Surgery? - Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery


Our surgeons continue to break boundaries and explore new approaches to a wide array of problems. We bring all of this expertise and technology together in a single place where research is a key area of emphasis.

Through continued research, we hope to develop new techniques, processes, and procedures in this expanding field. Applied research will evaluate:

  • Robotic surgery
  • Surgical instruments
  • Access devices
  • Visualization and imaging mechanisms
