Kathmandu: The endoscopy service which was disrupted for two years due to lack of human resources at Kanti Children Hospital has been resumed.
Executive Director at Hospital, Dr Yubanidhi Basaula, shared the information that the endoscopy service was begun again for a month. Endoscopy is done in patients to know the internal problems. This service for children is available only at this government facility.
