Investigating the usefulness of surgical techniques Evidence based surgery
This research group belongs to a relatively new research discipline that investigates the usefulness of surgical techniques, whether or not they are cost-effective and if so, for which groups of patients.read more
Aims of this research group
Innovative surgical technologies are being developed and introduced in clinical practice at a dizzying pace. We need to question how value can best be added in healthcare, and how this can be considered in the development and evaluations of surgical innovations.read more
Aims of this research groupInnovative surgical technologies are being developed and introduced in clinical practice at a dizzying pace. We need to question how value can best be added in healthcare, and how this can be considered in the development and evaluations of surgical innovations.
The ultimate goal of MITeC is to develop more efficient care and improvement of both short and long-term outcomes for patients (quality of life, satisfaction, use of pain medication, recovery time, etc.). In this respect, innovations will need to prove themselves in studies on their efficacy, efficiency, safety, and feasibility.
The early HTA research we perform will therefore be a tool for introducing potential valuable innovations and provide guidance on the further evaluation of minimal invasive image guided surgical techniques, and their optimal use.
