When Noah Desserich didn't feel like taking part in the evening activities for Family Camp at St. Olaf College, his mom thought it was preteen moodiness.
Turns out it was his appendix.
Noah's stomachache got worse as the night wore on. By 2:30 am, his mom Tracy was Googling appendicitis symptoms . . . and hospitals.
"We were 10 hours away from home, staying in the college dorms," Tracy says. "We only saw cornfields as we were coming into town; we didn’t know where anything was."
The Surgery Center has added two new endoscopy procedures, both designed to study the esophagus. These specialty tests are not common throughout the area; now, Northfield Hospital can serve as an alternative to sending patients to the Twin Cities or Rochester for these services.
