Voice therapy, which is a subspecialty of speech therapy, is provided to patients who are experiencing changes in their voices. This can range from an attorney, school teacher, parent, or hair dresser who uses his/her voice for work or to meet vocal needs during daily life to a church choir member who requires his or her voice to participate in meaningful life activities. No matter what you may have heard, changes in the voice are not normal and if persist for longer than 3 weeks warrant evaluation by a voice team. The Center also diagnoses and treats a variety of complex swallowing and airway disorders.
Our team including a laryngologist, speech pathologist specializing in voice and upper airway disorders, and singing voice specialist evaluate patients and establish a unique treatment plan tailored to the patients’ needs. This highly skilled, collaborative team offers convenient care utilizing technology and clinical expertise. Care of the voice and upper airway may require medication, surgery, therapy or combinations of these services. Voice therapy may be the only treatment required or may be utilized for pre- and or post-operative rehabilitation.
