Minimally Invasive New Technology in Oncologic Surgery
The Minimally Invasive New Technology in Oncologic Surgery (MINTOS) program is a multidisciplinary collaboration being developed by physicians in the Division of Surgery, under the guidance of the Division of Surgery Executive Committee and senior administration at MD Anderson.
The purpose of the program is to introduce and advance techniques in minimally invasive cancer care, by providing opportunities for the development of minimally invasive new technology in oncologic surgery, research, and education. The program provides patients with surgical alternatives by giving them access to the latest technology.
Minimally invasive surgery offers patients reduced pain and suffering associated with the treatment of cancer, and can improve their quality of life, all the while maintaining, or improving, contemporary oncologic outcomes.
