How You Can Help

MINTOS (Minimally Invasive & New Technology in Oncologic Surgery)

Minimally invasive surgery involves making several small incisions in the skin and inserting long, thin instruments into these incisions to reach inside the patient’s body. These smaller incisions translate into less pain, less pain medication and shorter hospitalization.

MINTOS (Minimally Invasive and New Technology in Oncologic Surgery) increases the quality and safety of clinical care and enhances productivity and efficiency in an effort to reduce the undesired effects of cancer treatment while maintaining or improving treatment outcomes for patients—helping them not only to survive, but also to flourish.

MINTOS will help facilitate the research endeavors of its members and encourage collaborative research efforts among many MD Anderson departments, partially through a systematic training program in new minimally invasive procedures available to residents, fellows, trainees and the surgical faculty.
