Nasal Endoscopy

A nasal endoscopy is a medical procedure used to examine the nose, pharynx (the opening in your throat near the soft palate and walls of the throat) and sinuses via the inside of the nose. A nasal endoscopy can provide information on speech disorders, pharyngeal function and diagnosis of diseases related to the throat and neck, and anatomical markers of sleep apnea. Examination of the larynx, or voice box, done concurrently, often reveals important clues to the patient’s respiratory condition.

Nasal endoscopy is performed by passing a flexible, camera-enabled, fiber-optic nasal endoscope through the nostril. The procedure is quick and typically painless. An anesthetic spray is normally applied to the lining of the nostril, thereby numbing and shrinking the tissue. Dr. Chandler may perform this procedure to better understand your sinus symptoms or speech problems.
