Your voice is a crucial communication tool. Whether you’re an opera singer whose aim is to express the entire range of human emotions, or a police dispatcher handling dozens of emergency calls each day, your voice is crucial to your work and indispensable in communicating with family and friends.
We understand this because we are not only voice care clinicians, our team consists of classically trained singers.
We treat voice professionals who experience:
To determine the cause of voice problems, our fellowship-trained laryngologists will use fiber-optic technology and a stroboscope to visualize the larynx and vocal cords.
Videostroboscopy provides a magnified, slow-motion view of your vocal cords, which allows laryngologists to better diagnose voice problems over traditional endoscopic methods.
The procedure involves placing a telescope-like device on the tongue or passing a flexible version through the nose. The scope shines a strobe light on the vocal cords while the you make sounds. The videotaped exam, which is reviewed with you, offers specific details regarding the vocal cord vibratory pattern, and allows the laryngologist to observe specific abnormalities of the vocal cords.
Laryngologists consider stroboscopy to be essential for state-of-the-art management of voice disorders.
If you experience any change in your voice that is impacting your livelihood, we can help. To schedule an appointment with one of our laryngologists, or for more information about our services, call 214-645-8300.
