Endoscopic steering instrument is provided, including an endoscope (80) having distal (82) and proximal (98) ends thereof. In a preferred embodiment, at least one proximal cylinder (92) is disposed in a vicinity of the proximal end, and at least one proximal piston (94) is slidably coupled to the at least one proximal cylinder. A first distal cylinder (88) is disposed at the distal end, and a first distal piston (90) is slidably coupled to the first distal cylinder. A second distal cylinder (88) is disposed at the distal end, and a second distal piston (90) is slidably coupled to the second distal cylinder. A first tube (86) is coupled to the first distal cylinder and a second tube (86) is coupled to the second distal cylinder.
