At NYU Langone’s Voice Center, our team of experts are dedicated to providing evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for a wide range of conditions that affect the sound and quality of the voice—including sore throat, infectious and inflammatory disorders, vocal cord paralysis, and vocal cord cancer—and offer a level of expertise not available anywhere else in the region.
Research and Education
We perform research related to voice, swallowing, and airway disorders.
We specialize in caring for the performing voice. Our team works with professional singers and actors across genres, as well as singers-in-training, amateurs, and other performers. We also treat professionals who rely upon their voice to perform their jobs, such as teachers, lawyers, and religious leaders.
Our fellowship-trained laryngologists, together with our experienced speech–language pathologists and dietitian, work as a team to evaluate and treat conditions including problems with swallowing, acid reflux, and chronic cough, as well as tremor, aging voice, injuries related to overuse of the voice, and benign vocal cord lesions, including cysts, polyps, and nodules.
If your condition requires surgical care, our physicians are experts in traditional and novel approaches to surgery.
Our swallowing specialists evaluate many swallowing-related problems on an outpatient basis. An evaluation might include clinical examination, flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing, or a videofluoroscopic swallow study. When additional testing or swallowing therapy is required, voice specialists and the swallowing therapists from Rusk Rehabilitation provide the therapies you need to recover.
