Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and Colonoscopy

These are diagnostic procedures where a fiberoptic camera is placed in the GI tract in order to direct pictures and samples from the intestines. This facilitates accurate diagnosis of gastrointestinal disorders.

Upper Endoscopy

This involves the passage of the endoscope into the mouth, oesophagus, stomach and duodenum. Your child may be in theatre for up to 45 minutes for the procedure including anaesthetic and recovery time. This is the approximate time your child will be away from the ward.

Lower GI Endoscopy

A lower endoscopy involves the passage of the endoscope through the anus into the lower bowel (colon). Your child may be in theatre up to 90 minutes for the procedure including anaesthetic and recovery time. (This is the approximate time your child will be away from the ward.)
