Welcome to the VCU Minimally Invasive Surgery Center

Dedicated to patient care, education, and research, the MIS Center promotes innovation and excellence through the development of laparoscopic skills training.

The MIS Center is a fully functional surgical simulation center serving students, residents, and established surgeons learning new laparoscopic surgery skills.

Fellowship Alumni: Where are they now?

Through advanced telecommunications, the videoconference center is fully interactive with operating rooms at VCU Medical Center hospitals and similar centers throughout the world.

The surgeons at the Minimally Invasive Surgery Center are on the forefront of laparoscopic surgery and have pioneered and developed numerous techniques and procedures. Surgical breakthroughs at the Center include pioneering laparoscopic weight-loss surgery, vagal blockade for weight loss, gastric stimulation for gastroparesis and soon, diaphragmatic pacemaker stimulation to help treat ventilator dependent quadriplegics.
