FEES is a safe instrumental swallow evaluation performed by a highly specialized Speech-Language Pathologist.
What is FEES? Why does my facility need this service?
Dysphagia can only be accurately diagnosed with appropriate imaging. A clinical or bedside swallow evaluation CANNOT adequately diagnose swallowing disorders.
Dysphagia in Motion provides Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) studies for the assessment and management of swallowing disorders. This is a cost-effective alternative to Modified Barium Swallow Studies (MBSS).
Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) is a gold-standard, evidence-based, and cost effective swallowing assessment which requires no radiation exposure or barium consumption and can be performed practically anywhere - in the dining room, at the bedside, in a wheelchair, etc. Using the flexible endoscope, we're able to visualize the pharynx in a patient's natural eating environment to assess swallowing function.
With FEES, you can be assured of a comprehensive assessment of swallow function and interdisciplinary communication which drastically improves treatment outcomes.
