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.
