Voice disorders such as hoarseness, improper pitch etc. usually occur at the vocal cord level. Any vocal cord lesions such as polyps, nodules, cyst, sulci, may cause change in voice. Some of these conditions require surgery for correction. Voice surgery is done using microsurgery and requires extreme precision. We perform voice surgery using CO2 and diode laser. Following voice surgery, patient needs around 3 days of voice rest after which he can start using his voice normally.
Laser is a precision instrument that enables bloodless surgery with minimal collateral damage. The acronym LASER stands for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” It uses a laser light source (laser beam) to remove diseased tissues.
