Our team of rigorously trained ENT specialists at The Barranco Clinic has extensive expertise in diagnosing and treating complicated voice disorders, including laryngitis, spasmodic dysphonia, and vocal cord paralysis. Our doctors can create a treatment plan that helps you get back on track so you can resume using your voice normally.

How the Examination is Performed

Our ENT doctors will investigate inflammation and growths that may be at the heart of your vocal disorder. We will perform in-depth diagnostic testing to determine exactly where and when the disturbance to your voice is occurring.

This may include the use of a laryngoscope or stroboscope, specialized tools that give the doctor the clearest view of your vocal cords. It may be necessary to surgically remove tissue from the throat. Other options for treatment include medication, speech therapy, or behavioral changes.

What to Expect from the Procedure

Once you have met with one of our caring, experienced ENT experts, your provider will establish an official diagnosis for your condition, discussing how a customized treatment plan can help relieve your symptoms. We will explore your medical history and conduct the appropriate tests. 

If needed, we may recommend surgery to excise polyps, masses, tumors, growths, or nodules on the vocal cords that are disrupting the normal function of your voice. Speech therapy and medication are also options that we may recommend.  

FAQs

Can children get complicated voice disorders?

Both adults and children can develop vocal disorders. While it’s normal for children to lose their voices from time to time due to yelling and screaming, when chronic hoarseness is present, it may be important to schedule a medical evaluation. Children may be suffering from vocal polyps, vocal cord paralysis, laryngeal tumors, or vocal cord webs.

What are the symptoms of a voice disorder?

Symptoms include hoarseness, dry or sore throat, breathiness, and problems with vocal pitch, tone, and volume.
