Endoscopy

Director: Mario Traina

At ISMETT, pediatric patients undergo endoscopy procedures, including ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiography), EUS (endoscopic ultrasound) and traditional diagnostic ultrasound. Patients of few months of age undergo many of these procedures under general anesthesia, monitored by a dedicated anesthesiology team.

In the last three years, at ISMETT, over 700 diagnostic and interventional endoscopy procedures have been performed in patients under 5 years of age.
