Patients experiencing a change in vocal pitch, tone, or volume may have an underlying vocal disorder. Vocal disorders occur when the vocal cords begin to vibrate abnormally.
Your Treatment with SFENTA
The treatment for a complicated vocal disorder will be tailored to the specific type of condition and your unique symptoms. These disorders are often the result of inflammation or growth within the vocal cords. Some patients also experience a paralyzation of the vocal cords that can stop them from vibrating, and affects one’s ability to speak. Before treatment, testing will be performed to diagnose the specific condition.
This may be performed using a laryngoscopy, a narrow tube that is interested through the throat. Testing may also include a stroboscopy, which is a device that uses light and a small camera to examine the vocal cords while in use. Both of these tools can help give providers a better view of the vocal cords. Your treatment may be a combination of therapies, including surgery to remove growths, medication, or speech therapy.
