We assess swallowing with Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing technology.
Have you ever had difficulty swallowing, frequent coughing, or had to constantly clear your throat when eating or drinking? If you answered yes to any of these, you may benefit from an evaluation of your swallowing function.
In this procedure, a small camera is used to assess swallowing while a patient eats and/or drinks. This evaluation allows direct viewing of the throat without the use of radiation. Upon completion of the procedure, our speech therapists will provide immediate recommendations, including modification of food and/or liquid and strategies to make it easier and safer to swallow.
