Surgical Services

Surgical expertise at NCH

At NCH, we provide you with comprehensive surgical services, ranging from minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgeries to traditional surgical procedures, and we're committed to offering the most advanced surgical technologies. That's why we were among the first hospitals to offer surgery using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System for a wide range of prostate, kidney, gynecological and colorectal surgical procedures. And, with the da Vinci system—da Vinci Xi —we’ve increased our ability to offer minimally invasive surgeries for a broader range of conditions. 

We’ve even been named a Robotic Surgery Epicenter for gynecologic surgery, the first of its kind in the tri-state area of Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana. Surgeons from around the nation come to learn from the NCH team.

The NCH Advantage

Access to the most advanced surgical technologies

  • Sophisticated diagnostic screenings and biopsies for earlier and more accurate diagnoses.
  • Minimally invasive surgeries for many orthopedic, gynecological, thoracic, urological and colorectal conditions.
  • da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System offers patients less painful, safer and faster recoveries.
  • Cryosurgery—Using ultrasound technology to guide needles into the prostate, this procedure delivers extremely cold gases that freeze and kill cancer cells.

Personalized and compassionate support

Our expert teams of medical technologists, surgical nurses, and board-certified anesthesiologists and surgeons provide quality care and keep your family informed, and our hospital has achieved Magnet® status, exemplifying the gold standard in nursing excellence. Only 7% of hospitals in the country can boast this designation.

Whatever type of surgery you're having, we believe that the more you know about what to expect, the better you'll feel and the faster you'll recover. 

Quality matters

At Northwest Community Healthcare, we perform more than 17,000 inpatient surgeries, outpatient surgeries and minimally invasive surgeries each year. And whether we're performing back surgery, breast surgery, gallbladder surgery, heart surgery, orthopedic surgery or any other general surgery procedure, we are committed to providing the best, safest care possible.
