Department of pediatric gastroenterology

The pediatric gastroenterology department at Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul deals with diagnosing and treating diseases of the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, biliary tract, pancreas and spleen in children. In addition, patients are observed in connection with nutritional problems occurring in the age group from the neonatal period to the end of adolescence. Medical care is provided both in inpatient and outpatient settings. If the child needs inpatient treatment, the department offers the opportunity to stay in the ward with the mother or father. To make an accurate diagnosis, the department performs a full range of instrumental diagnostics, including endoscopy, gastroscopy and colonoscopy, as well as the study of gastrointestinal motility, for example, oesophagal and rectal manometry, oesophagal pH test and liver biopsy. Doctors are rightly proud of their achievements in the field of gastroenterology and provide highly qualified medical care for young patients.

Gastroenterologists specialise in treating patients with acute and chronic inflammatory, autoimmune, and allergic diseases. In addition, congenital malformations of the gastrointestinal tract are treated together by pediatric surgeons. The department also has exceptional experience in treating conditions of the liver and biliary tracts, such as inflammatory liver diseases and chronic non-communicable liver diseases. The main component of therapy is the regulation of nutrition according to a unique dietary scheme. Thus, doctors can control both the height and weight of the child. In many cases, drug therapy is used. The doctor selects the necessary drug or a combination of several medications for each child, considering the specific clinical situation.
