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.
