The international Society for Medical Innovation and Technology

We are an international society, formed in 1989 under the name “Society for Minimally Invasive Therapy” (SMIT) by an innovative group of medical practitioners led by John Wickham. We were dedicated to the multidisciplinary advancement of minimally invasive therapy, which is intended to reduce the patient trauma after traditional surgical or radiological interventions.
