VitalStim™ Therapy for Outpatients with Swallowing Disorders
We provide swallowing treatment using a technique called VitalStim™
therapy. VitalStim™ therapy is an innovative, non-traditional therapy
that uses a small current, passing through external electrodes on the neck,
to stimulate inactive swallowing muscles. It is the only technology cleared
by the FDA for restoring the swallowing function.
The real world evidence is encouraging as VitalStim™ holds remarkable
potential and abundant hope for an estimated 15 million Americans with swallowing
Our outpatient speech and language pathologists are certified to administer
VitalStim™ therapy. We need a physician’s referral and insurance
authorization for speech therapy services.
