MIMIS in Crosby is one of 162 Fellowship programs in the United States and Canada that is accredited by the Fellowship Council. The Fellowship Council is a national body that provides accreditation for Fellowships in five areas of surgical specialties: Advanced GI Surgery, Advanced GI-Minimally Invasive Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, Flexible Endoscopy, Hepato-Pancreatic-Biliary Surgery, Foregut Colorectal Surgery, and Thoracic Surgery. The institutional accreditation process is rigorous and comprehensive, with extensive evaluation of the quality of the teaching faculty, the facility, and surgical outcomes. Once a surgeon completes a post-graduate Fellowship, they are highly sought after by hospitals and surgical practices throughout the country because of their advanced specialty training.
MIMIS’ vision is to propagate minimally invasive surgery for the benefit of patients everywhere through education, research and global outreach, MIMIS surgeons and their alumni are known nationally and internationally.
