A Partner in Innovation and Medical Education


Innovation and Medical Education are the focus of the TriHealth Minimally Invasive Training Center (MITC). Our goal is to improve patient outcomes through innovative techniques by training physicians and other clinicians in our facility. We partner with clinicians and sponsors in the pursuit of advancing surgical techniques and quality improvement- both in technique and device advancements. Our facility hosts a daVinci Robot that can be used for training courses. These courses take place within our newly renovated lab which helps to cultivate creative ideas, innovation and education.

The TriHealth MITC is designed exclusively for healthcare practitioners and medical industry professionals to participate in and/or conduct educational, hands-on training courses to advance the quality of patient care through new medical research, techniques and/or device development assistance. Our goal is to help facilitate the learning of sound surgical techniques while helping sponsors and clinicians expound new ones.

We continue to explore the use of innovative technologies and strategies. The TriHealth MITC is a well-known leader, counting among its resources leading-edge research, product development assistance, translational outcomes and quality improvement.
