Pediatric Endoscopic

What are Pediatric Endoscopic Procedures?

Colonoscopy (lower endoscopy) – Exam of the colon (large intestine). Your child will need to be on a liquid diet for 1-2 days before the procedure. Also your child takes medicine to clean out the colon.

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD or upper Endoscopy) – Exam of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. The duodenum is part of the small intestine.

Flexible sigmoidoscopy – A short exam of the lower portion of the colon

Other procedures that can be done with these exams:

Biopsy – A tiny piece of the inside layer of the digestive tract is removed for examination under the microscope. This is usually done.

Dilatation – Stretching out a narrowed area

Polypectomy – Removal of a polyp, a small growth, using a special wire.
