Paediatric gastroenterology is a medical field that specialises in diseases of the digestive tract, liver, and pancreas in children from infancy until adulthood. Long-term abdominal pain followed by constipation, vomiting, nausea, or faltering growth are some of the most common reasons to seek out the help of a paediatric gastroenterologist.
Canadian Medical is able to offer a comprehensive laboratory examination of the digestive tract and abdominal ultrasound.
In the case that further examination is necessary, we have an established relationship with the Clinic for Children and Adolescence (KDDL VFN), and the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, who are able to provide pH-metry and MII (multichannel intraluminal impedance), esophagogastroduodenoscopy in both general and local anaesthesia, coloscopy in general anaesthetic, liver biopsy, X-Ray of the swallow and the passage through the oesophagus and gastric emptying, barium enema, CT colonography, MRI of the pelvic floor and MR enterography. A sweat test can also be provided through the partnership of KDDL VFN, the 1st Faculty of Medicine Charles University and Motol University Hospital.
At Canadian Medical, we are able to ensure long-term monitoring of children with gastrointestinal diseases, including more complicated illnesses such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and autoimmune hepatitis.
