Help with Swallowing Disorders
Therapies of the Rockies is bringing state of the art dysphagia instrumentation to our outpatient clinic via the use of our Fiberoptic Endoscopic of Swallow (FEES) system. Our FEES Endoscopist is trained in the assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders through the implementation of FEES.
We all have difficulty swallowing sometimes. We may have trouble chewing a tough piece of meat. We may gag on food or have to swallow hard to get it down. And we have all had a drink “go down the wrong way,” making us cough and choke. A child with a swallowing disorder will have trouble like this all the time. A swallowing disorder is also called dysphagia (dis-FAY-juh).
