We specialize in the evaluation and management of voice, swallowing, and airway disorders. These include services for patients with professional voice demands, voice misuse and abuse, recurrent laryngitis, spasmodic dysphonia, vocal cord paralysis, the aging voice, cancer of the larynx, benign vocal cord lesions, and neurological speech and swallowing difficulties related to conditions such as Parkinson's disease.
