Pediatric Advanced Diagnostic and Therapeutic Endoscopy Services

Advanced EndoUniversity of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital has expanded our gastroenterology service to include advanced endoscopic capabilities, in addition to a number of interventional procedures.

U-M’s pediatric gastroenterologists offer the most advanced diagnostic techniques and therapeutic interventions with a full spectrum of endoscopic procedures using state of the art technology and equipment.

With this expertise, we have been able to expand the scope of pediatric gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, and pancreatic diseases that can be diagnosed and treated endoscopically.

Services offered include:

  • Routine endoscopic procedures such as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopy (upper and lower endoscopy)
  • Advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures including:
    • ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) is a procedure performed often to diagnose and treat hepatobiliary and pancreatic diseases such as bile duct stones, strictures, bile leaks, and major organ trauma (transections).
    • EUS (endoscopic ultrasound) is used for pancreatic disease evaluation and intervention, tumor/mass evaluation and sampling throughout the GI tract, as well as rectal/perianal disease evaluation in Crohn Disease.
    • DBE (double balloon enteroscopy) is an endoscopic procedure used to reach the deepest parts of the intestines for diagnosis of small bowel Crohn Disease, interventions for small bowel bleeding, and removal of small bowel polyps

Pediatric gastroenterologists also work closely with the GI physiology lab to provide video capsule endoscopy and motility testing. All procedures are performed in collaboration with pediatric anesthesia in order to keep our patients comfortable and safe.
