Learn More About Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES)
Endoscopy has been used to diagnose and treat swallowing disorders since 1986 and is now available to South Louisiana with Dysphagia in Motion. To learn more about FEES, watch this short informational video from the Mayo Clinic.
We offer a variety of services to fit your needs
Why Choose Us
Because high quality imaging paired with in-depth analysis of swallowing function leads to improved recommendations.
We aim to have your patient evaluated within 1-2 business days.
FEES costs 25-50% less than a traditional modified barium swallow study (MBSS) at the hospital.
We work our hardest to prevent your patient from being placed on texture modified diets but if they need to, we can prove with objective data for accurate documentation.
We offer same-day reporting and take the time to help you come up with strategies and make recommendations that ACTUALLY WORK!
