American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery

The American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery (AIMIS) is the nation’s pre-eminent educator of advanced surgical techniques for women’s health specialists. AIMIS brings together hospitals, surgeons, clinics, medical technology companies, and patients by providing a platform to deliver advanced surgical procedures that improve health care for all ages.

Advancing Health Care for Women Through Better Treatment Option

Minimally invasive surgery, whether laparoscopic or robotically assisted, is advancing health care for women by providing doctors new tools to accomplish the same goals as they would with traditional open surgery. Patients who experience minimally invasive procedures suffer less pain and blood loss, with fewer complications and a faster recovery time.

As an AIMIS member, women’s health specialists derive great benefits from education and data collection. Not only do we teach minimally invasive surgery methods, but we also offer patients resources on where to find an AIMIS accredited physician, information on what to expect from a minimally invasive procedure, and more.

Dedicated to Quality and Innovation

AIMIS physicians are dedicated to raise the standard of health care for women and to lower surgical complications with expert surgeons. Minimally invasive surgery is not only good for patients. It’s also good for business. AIMIS works with its member physicians every step of the way – even after you step out of our programs.
