Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has been broadly available for well over a decade, yet penetration is widely variable. Open surgical approaches are still common for many surgeries including hysterectomy and colorectal.

In this podcast interview, I asked Covidien’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mike Tarnoff to explain what’s going on with MIS adoption in the US and around the world, and what role doctors, patients, and industry should be playing.
