MIMIS Surgery




The Minnesota Institute for Minimally Invasive Surgery. MIMIS. On the Medical Campus in Crosby.


The skills of a surgeon. The strength of a campus.


At MIMIS, surgery is an art. The procedures and technology available are on the forefront of the best technology available. MIMIS is supported by over 60 surgical professionals in numerous specialties from general surgery, orthopaedics, weight-loss surgery, gynecology, podiatry, and more.


MIMIS is one of three places in Minnesota that offers a new, state-of-the-art minimally invasive treatment for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). The LINX Reflux Management System is only available at CRMC, the Mayo Clinic, and Abbott Northwestern Hospital.


Our surgery staff provides pre-operative care and education, evaluation, anesthesia, and post-operative care to the highest level of standards. MIMIS is home to two advanced care cardiac anesthesiologists who provide 24/7 anesthesia care to patients. Many of our surgeons are fellowship trained in advanced specialties and we are an accredited center by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).


Recognized by Blue Cross Blue Shield as a Blue Distinction Center for our proven expertise, high quality care and patient results.
