Dysphagia is defined as difficulty in Swallowing. Evaluations are administered by the Speech Pathologists to determine the cause of the problem and the most appropriate course of treatment. Highly technical swallowing tests include Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing Studies, and Modified Barium Swallow Studies which are performed in conjunction with the Radiology Department. Once the severity of the swallowing problem has been determined, therapy is administered to help improve a patient’s swallowing function.
