Developed by three world-renowned doctors at Florida Hospital, transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) provides a less invasive surgical option for patients with rectal tumors. A hybrid of previous techniques, the TAMIS reduces pain and recovery time for patients. In addition, the surgery takes under an hour to complete, much shorter than other procedures.

During transanal minimally invasive surgery, doctors thread a scope through the rectum to the site of the tumor. Then the surgeons remove the tumors using specialized laparoscopic tools.

Florida Hospital’s dedication to developing minimally invasive surgery options, like TAMIS, continues to improve the care we provide to patients. We stay on the cutting-edge of medicine to ensure you get the best care using the latest technology.
