Minimally invasive surgical technology

At NCH, we are proud to provide a wide range of minimally invasive surgical procedures like laparoscopies in addition to traditional general surgery. Minimally invasive surgical procedures usually involve a video camera and lens system controlled by a computer. This provides the surgeon with a very accurate visual of the area he or she is operating on and allows for greater precision.
