Vocal Disorder Treatment 

Vocal disorder treatment with Texas ENT Specialists is customized to meet the needs of your specific condition and symptoms. Vocal cord disorders can stem from inflammation, growths, or a paralyzation of the vocal cords. The testing of the vocal cords may include the use of a laryngoscope, which is a thin tube that is inserted into the throat to give the provider a better view of the vocal cords. The diagnosis process could also include video stroboscopy, in which a​ strobe light and a camera are used to see​the intricate movements of the vocal cords. Treatment may require surgical intervention to remove tissue growths, medication, speech therapy, or even changes in your vocal habits.
