CMIS brings together faculty from the University of Minnesota Departments of Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Orthopaedic Surgery, Otorhinolaryngology, and Urologic Surgery to practice and study minimally invasive alternatives to traditional surgery. Minimally invasive surgery usually results in less pain, less scarring, and less recovery time for patients, and significantly reduced costs.
