Upper and lower gastrointestinal system endoscopy procedures and liver biopsy are performed in our unit when deemed necessary for the diagnosis of the diseases listed above.

Endoscopy is performed under operating room conditions with an endoscopy device that is suitable for children. The patient, who is anesthetized with intravenous medicines by the anesthesiologist, does not feel any pain and does not remember the procedure. After upper and lower gastrointestinal system endoscopy, patients can be sent home after a few hours of observation.

Liver biopsy may be required for the diagnosis of liver diseases due to various reasons. In the procedure that can be performed from the newborn period, the patient is put to sleep under the conditions described above, and liver tissue with a thickness of 1 mm and a length of 1-2 cm is removed with biopsy needles suitable to the patient's age. After the procedure, the patient is hospitalized and followed up in the hospital for 24 hours.
