Who We Are
The international Society for Medical Innovation and Technology (iSMIT) is 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. The founding members were leaders in their fields and were dedicated to the multidisciplinary advancement of minimally invasive therapy in an attempt to reduce patient trauma arising from traditional surgical operations or radiological interventions. The current membership base includes representatives from most medical specialties, instrument manufacturing, biomedical engineering and research out of >35 countries. As to reflect this broader membership as well as to attract further members not necessarily only within minimally invasive therapy, the name of the Society was formally changed to “international Society for Medical Innovation and Technology” iSMIT.
