Services

The Center for Voice and Swallowing offers a wide array of evaluation and treatment options for patients with various voice and swallowing disorders including vocal cord paralysis, spasmodic dysphonia, acid reflux, vocal polyps and cysts, sulcus vocalis and vocal scarring, as well as singer's nodules and other disorders of the professional voice. The Center also offers diagnostic and treatment options for papillomas and early stage larynx cancer, and for swallowing and voice problems due to Parkinson's disease, stroke and other neurological disorders.

Teachers often have voice challenges that are often overlooked.

Voice Screenings

Performers generally look upon vocal problems with dread. There are few things worse than having to walk in front of an audience with the fear that your voice may not function properly. A routine examination by a voice care team can often make the difference between a successful performance and a canceled one.

The Voice Treatment Program at the Boston Medical Center specializes in state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services to individuals of all ages who present with a variety of voice disorders. Our patients include professional and non-professional singers, public speakers, teachers, clergy, attorneys, sales associates and actors.

The time to see a doctor is when you first suspect something is wrong, long before a minor issue becomes a major one.

 A voice screening can help:

  • Determine the presence of a potential laryngeal pathology.
  • Determine a risk for throat problems.
  • Provide a baseline image of a healthy larynx to use as a source of comparison if you experience voice problems in the future.
  • Provide education on the normal functioning of the larynx to understand how the voice works, how to control it and to prolong and enhance your career as a professional voice user.
  • Identify habits for optimal vocal use to help you meet the demands of your lifestyle.
