Pediatric Surgical Endoscopy

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.


Our team is standing by to schedule your child’s appointment.
