Because EoE is a chronic condition, treatment is continued long-term. Although treatment does not cure EoE, it controls your child's symptoms, discomfort and prevents complications.
Ongoing monitoring with repeating biopsies may be done to make sure inflammation and other medical issues related to EoE are well controlled.
Visit our services page to get an idea of what we do in our EoE GI Disease Center at Nemours Children's, including an upper GI test that doesn't require anesthesia (unsedated transnasal endoscopy or "TNE"). We use the EndoflipTM (endoluminal functional lumen imaging probe) an advanced technology to help us see and measure inside the esophagus.
