Education is a high priority of the McGill Minimally Invasive Surgical Program. An annual course has been developed for residents in general surgery. This involves a series of two-hour didactic teaching sessions including both slides and videos covering the basic physiology, surgical principles and description of specific procedures. Stay posted on current events!
The McGill MIS Fellowship is an academic program whose goal is the development of a general surgeon who at the end of the fellowship has acquired expertise in the variety of surgical procedures under the umbrella of MIS. In addition, the fellow will be exposed to and trained in the educational, research, and administrative aspects of the field.
Outcomes research is an important way to demonstrate that minimally invasive surgical approaches are both effective and safe. A database has been developed, and patients followed prospectively. Outcome measures include measures of efficacy, patient satisfaction, and quality of life including both disease specific and generic quality of life measures.
Welcome to Minimally Invasive Surgery
The McGill University Center of Excellence Program in Minimally Invasive Surgery was developed to integrate the clinical, research, educational, and administrative activities in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) across the adult and pediatric sites of the McGill University Health Center and the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital. It represents activities within the specialty of general surgery primarily and increasingly that of urology, as well as some of the activities of the Departments of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Thoracic Surgery and Pediatric Surgery.
The success of the program is the result of the collegial collaboration of a number of surgeons, nurses, affiliated research scientists and excellent support from the Audiovisual Department, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Management, and the organizational skills of Maria Cortese, our Administrative Assistant.
