Conversion of G to GJ tube and GJ tube exchange

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This
Gastrojejunal (GJ) tube placement is a minimally invasive, image guided technique in which a special soft feeding catheter is placed through an existing hole in the stomach (gastrostomy) into the small bowel (jejunum).

How Boston Children's Hospital approaches GJ tube placement

This procedure is performed by the hospital's interventional radiologists, who have special training in performing minimally invasive, image-guided techniques in infants and children.

In addition to the interventional radiologist, your child will be treated by a team of anesthesiologists, nurse practitioners, nurses and technologists who specialize in caring for children.

We perform GJ tube placements in our suite on the second floor of the hospital, which features three procedure rooms equipped with the latest imaging technology, a recovery area for patients who have received sedation or anesthesia and examining rooms for outpatient visits.
