Minimal invassiv surgery and endosurgery in children has been introduced during the last 10-15 years. Techniques are different from adults, but dependent on the same skills and knowledge.

The close collaboration between pediatric surgeons and adults surgeons and gastroenterologists has been the base for this reseach and developement.
