Our fellowship program in Minimally Invasive Surgery is one of the first fellowships of its kind in the country, and is the longest-running of the four programs in the UT Health/MIST Fellowship Consortium.
The contribution of Dr. Leggett, who is a pioneer of laparoscopy in Houston, brings forth added strength to the UT Health/MIST fellowship consortium. Dr. Leggett is well-recognized and has published extensively in medical journals detailing his innovative surgical techniques. This aspect of the fellowship is very busy with a well-rounded experience in all types of laparoscopic general surgery, with an emphasis on anti-reflux and bariatric procedures, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy. There is the opportunity for DaVinci robotic surgery training and certification. Two fellows are accepted annually.
