What is FEES?

FEES: Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing

FEES is one of two methods used to visualize the swallow. FEES is unique in that it allows clinicians to bring the evaluation to the patient. This means no more expensive hospital trips and obtaining the results of the assessment is immediate.

How is it done?

FEES utilizes a small camera/scope to view the pharynx (throat) while the patient is eating. The assessment is extremely fast with minimal discomfort.

This assessment is for anyone experiencing signs of dysphagia or in an at risk population such as: neurological disorders, stroke victims, traumatic brain injuries, gastric diseases, oropharyngeal cancers, etc.

What can FEES do for me?

Swallowing problems or dysphagia is estimated to affect up to 15 million adults in the United States. Many sufferers are never appropriately diagnosed or treated, some living with serious consequences. Planning for effective management requires instrumental examination such as FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing).
