Nasal Endoscopy to Evaluate Hoarseness on Dr. Oz Show!

On Oct 23, 2009, Dr. Oz (his show) with the assistance of Dr. Jonathan Aviv, demonstrated a procedure called Nasal Endoscopy which is the main method of evaluating a patient with hoarseness. A pretty good and accurate demonstration I may add.

Watch the video clip here.

Of course, I have produced a few video clips of the same of which one can be viewed below. Click here to watch one being performed on a child. Read more about this procedure here as well as what happens when the voice doesn't sound normal here.

The main advantage of endoscopy is that it can be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic (treatment) purposes. Hence endoscopy has become a mandatory investigation in Gastroenterology.
