EvoEndo is making pediatric unsedated transnasal endoscopy a reality

EvoEndo is driving the evolution of innovative pediatric endoscopy by allowing diagnostic upper endoscopies to be performed safely and quickly in children without the use of general anesthesia. Our sterile single-use transnasal endoscope eliminates infection risk and prohibitive startup costs of expensive reusable scope systems, creating a safer, faster, and more affordable endoscopy solution for patients, their parents, and physicians.
