Ocean ENT has started scheduling elective surgeries and performing in-office endoscopy appointments. Any individual with a scheduled surgery prior to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak should call the Ocean ENT office to schedule a new date with a surgical coordinator. Necessary endoscopic procedures can be performed in the office. However, these patients will be required to undergo a COVID-19 antigen PCR test (nasal swab) prior to the procedure. The endoscopic procedure will take place within three days of a negative test result.
What is an endoscopy?
An endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to view interior surfaces of a tissue or organ that physicians cannot normally see while performing a standard examination. The procedure is done with an endoscope, a thin flexible tub with a tiny magnifying camera and light.
