Voice Changes Treatment Overview
Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery has extensive experience in treating voice problems and changes. Dysphonia is the abnormal functioning of the voice, and abnormalities or impairments have to be present in a single or multiple vocal parameter. These vocal parameters can include pitch, loudness, quality, or variability. Smokers and certain occupational groups and artists are at particular risk for this condition, including singers, teachers, and coaches. Many people have the false assumption that this is a speech disorder, but, in fact, this is a disorder of the larynx.
Voice Changes Surgical Technique
Voice changes can happen for a number of different reasons. In order for treatment to be effective, one must consider the possible underlying causes:
- Vocal abuse
- Misuse of the vocal chords
- Neurological conditions, such as MS
These causes can trigger the growth of vocal nodules, vocal polyps, and vocal chord ulcers, which can cause the fluctuations in the voice others are hearing. Those underlying causes can also contribute to laryngitis and carcinoma.
To treat voice problems, Dr. Saman will inspect the vocal folds through an endoscopy, taking a biopsy only when medically necessary. Once he has performed a thorough examination, he will recommend a treatment plan based on the severity and nature of your voice problems. While medication and speech therapy can be helpful tools, sometimes microsurgery is necessary. The goal of the surgery is to remove the abnormal tissue and restore and preserve your natural voice.
