A Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) is a procedure used to assess how well you swallow. FEES is an outpatient procedure and is performed by an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist jointly with a speech and language/ swallowing therapist (SLT).
The device used in FEES is called a flexible nasendoscope. This is a thin, flexible tube with a small camera and light on the end that is inserted up into the nose to give your specialists a view of your throat as you swallow and breathe.
