Pikkujätti perfoms endoscopic examinations (gastroscopy) of the esophagus and stomach.
Gastroscopy can be performed on children when examining cases of intestinal upset. Celiac disease is verified by a sample taken from the duodenum.
The doctor performing the operation assesses if it is necessary.
Gastroscopy is performed on children under general anaesthesia in the operating room of Pikkujätti Itäkeskus or Aava Kamppi. Together with the sampling, the procedure takes less than half an hour. More detailed information and instructions are given before the procedure.
