Improve the Safety of your Swallow

SFS Therapies is proud to announce our newest service offered!  As of the month of October, we now offer Modified Barium Swallow Studies (MBSS) for the complete evaluation of swallowing disorders!


Modified Barium Swallow Studies are the most effective way of diagnosing a swallowing disorder (dysphagia).  Now partnering with Steinberg Diagnostics, our speech pathologists will be able to take an inside look at your mouth and throat to fully diagnose your possible dysphagia.  MBSS uses an x-ray machine to be able to see the muscles and cartilages of your throat.

Patients are asked to eat and drink different consistencies mixed with barium (a substance that can be visualized on x-ray machines), while the speech pathologist assesses the swallow.  The best part is that this outpatient evaluation is FAST and results are ready immediately!  Recommendations regarding ways to improve the safety of your swallow, as well as possible therapy, will be discussed with you immediately following the evaluation.

A Modified Barium Swallow Study may be recommended if you feel you have a swallowing disorder.

If you have difficulty eating or drinking, feel that foods/drinks are going “down the wrong pipe”, or feel food “getting caught” in your throat, call SFS Therapies today for a complete assessment of your swallowing abilities.  We are constantly growing and improving to best serve the people of the Las Vegas Valley. We are #NotYourAverageClinic.
