There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
At Boston Children’s GI Motility Center, we offer advanced, high-resolution manometry procedures that provide your doctors with the most detail about your child’s condition possible. We perform high-resolution esophageal manometry with impedance, which allows the simultaneous measurement of the esophageal contractions and the flow of the fluid that is being ingested.
An esophageal manometry is a procedure in which a small flexible tube is placed into the nose and passed into the esophagus (food pipe). It's used to figure out how well your child's esophagus is working by measuring the pressure and coordination of the esophageal muscles. By gauging the strength of these muscles, doctors may learn more about your child's symptoms, like difficulty swallowing, chest pain or gastroesophageal reflux.
If you have any questions about an upcoming test, procedure or any other aspect of your child's treatment, please reach out to any member of your care team—he or she will be able to explain what to expect during your visit and share tips on how to make it as easy as possible.
For an appointment, more information or to obtain a second opinion for your child, please contact the Motility and Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders Center at 617-355-6055 or request an appointment online.
