The MIS fellowship at McLaren Flint, led by Dr. Michael Kia, offers a broad experience in the care of
complex patients encompassing bariatric and advanced minimally invasive surgery and
gastrointestinal surgery. The goal of the MIS Fellowship at McLaren Flint is training fellows to:
1. Gain the knowledge and experience in the inpatient and outpatient evaluation and
management of patients for bariatric, gastrointestinal, and advanced minimally invasive
2. Refine procedural skills commonly required in the care of these patients such as advanced
laparoscopic cases i.e. (solid organ, foregut, ventral hernia, inguinal hernia, colectomy and
related procedures) in addition to endoscopy. The fellow will perform advanced cases such as
bariatric procedures (RNY and Sleeve) and other advanced laparoscopic cases as well as
complex acute care surgical cases;
3. Experience and understand the day-to-day function of a complex surgical service; and
4. Develop a “transition to practice” for the care of general surgical patients.
At the conclusion of the fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery, the fellow should be able to
provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art medical & surgical care to patients with surgical diseases
approachable through minimal access techniques. This will include the abilities to investigate,
diagnose, recommend appropriate treatment options, perform the operative procedures and provide
the pre-, peri-, and post-operative care.
