Treatments and services

At Emory Voice Center, we provide a range of voice disorder treatments and services. Disorders we treat include dysphonia, larynx disorders and issues of vocal fold misuse. Our center offers evaluation, treatment and related services all in one convenient location. We have listed some of our specific treatments and services below.

Evaluation of vocal disorders 

Our team will review your symptoms, medical history and examine your head and neck. Several members of our team will help test for vocal quality, efficiency, and proper technique.

Laryngeal videostroboscopy

A minimally invasive procedure that uses an endoscope (a small tube equipped with a fiber optic camera.) A stroboscopic light source lets us check laryngeal function and vibration. This helps diagnose larynx disorders.

Voice therapy

Voice therapy is an effective way to address many voice disorders. To that end, the Emory Voice Center employs a team of specialized voice therapists dedicated to optimizing a patient's voice. In many cases, voice therapy is the primary treatment used to address a patient's concern.


A physician examines the vocal folds of the larynx with magnification tools. We conduct this procedure under general anesthesia.

Diagnostic laryngeal electromyography

This procedure measures the electrical activity of the laryngeal muscles. It can be used for several purposes, including prediction of recovery in patients with vocal fold paralysis.

Laryngeal Botox therapy

Botox offers one of the most effective treatments for spasmodic dysphonia. The drug softens and weakens vocal muscles, diminishing spasms.

Laryngeal microsurgery

A minimally invasive procedure that removes vocal fold nodules, polyps, or cysts. It offers highly effective results.

Laryngeal framework for surgery for vocal fold paralysis and atrophy

Often, vocal fold paralysis or atrophy requires surgery. In cases like this, we use a variety of techniques to improve breathing, swallowing, and voice.

Open airway surgery

Certain airway stenosis patients may be candidates for open airway surgery and reconstruction. Our physicians know when and how to intervene.

Voice and swallowing therapy for patients with head and neck cancer

Specialized speech pathologists provide evaluation, counseling, and therapy services to head and neck cancer patients. This includes diagnosed patients, patients undergoing treatment and patients who have completed treatment.

Exercise programs can reduce the negative side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. They promote improved swallow to enhance the quality of life during and after treatment.

Endoscopic airway surgery

We can address many difficulties with narrowing of the upper airway through the mouth without external incisions. We perform many of these endoscopic interventions on an outpatient basis. This reduces disruption to your life.

Transnasal esophagoscopy

In some situations, we perform transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE) in our clinic. TNE helps check for difficulties in swallowing. Adding sedation can comfort you while we perform diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.

Awake KTP laser therapy

We are the only facility within a 150-mile radius that offers this innovative option for treatment of vocal fold lesions. Patients can receive this treatment in the office without sedation.
