    Our Services - CSA™

    Comprehensive Swallow -Voice Assessment -   is a safe, medically non-invasive procedure for the sensory and motor assessment of the pharyngeal, laryngeal, and esophageal aspects of dysphagia while considering the oromotor inter-relationships.

    It is not enough to know that a person has dysphagia and/or aspirates. It is imperative to know the "why" and the "how" so that treatment may be individualized for patient specific therapy interventions to expedite positive outcomes.

    SBA uses an endoscopically based differential diagnostic algorithm for evaluating physiological disorders of the upper aerodigestive tract. 

    In addition to ruling in/out swallow disorders, it also affords the opportunity to rule in/out comorbidities with physiological disorders involving reflux disorders, cough disorders, and voice disorders.
