Disorders of the throat and voice can range from annoying to serious. Anything that interferes with our ability to communicate, breathe, or eat is worth having our board certified otolaryngologists take a look at. Hoarseness, sore throat, laryngitis, tonsillitis, and vocal cord lesions can all cause misery.
Voice is the sound made by vibration of the vocal cords caused by air passing out through the larynx bringing the cords closer together. Our voice is invaluable for both our social interaction as well as for most people’s occupation. Proper care and use of your voice improves the likelihood of having a healthy voice for your entire lifetime.
