The WVU Medicine Voice and Swallowing Care Center provides evaluation and rehabilitation services for voice and swallowing disorders using the most modern diagnostic tools to assess your disorder. The Voice and Swallowing Care Center also provides personalized services for the professional voice user.

Conditions We Treat

Common problems that may affect your voice or swallowing ability, include:

Evaluation and Treatment

Your voice or swallowing disorder treatment will begin with an examination by a laryngologist, an ear, nose, and throat physician who is specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of voice and swallowing disorders. Our providers will look for any sources of vocal fatigue, pain caused by using your voice, or swallowing difficulty.

Together, you, your doctor, and a speech language therapist will work to restore your best possible voice quality or ability to swallow with more ease. We offer a variety of voice and swallowing treatments, including BOTOX® injections for spastic dysphonia, laryngectomy rehabilitation, speech therapy, surgical removal of vocal cord lesions or growths, and voice therapy.
