Endoscopy is a type of minimally invasive surgery. An endoscope is a long, thin tube with a camera attached to the end. We use specialized types of endoscopes for different procedures, allowing us to perform effective, precise surgeries that result in less pain and a shorter recovery.
At Children’s National Hospital, we routinely perform surgical endoscopy procedures as part of our commitment to using the least invasive surgery possible for your child.
