Throat and Voice Specialties
There are many reasons why patients may notice voice changes and issues including vocal cord weakness or paralysis. Getting your vocal issues diagnosed isn’t just important for speaking and singing, it’s imperative for your health as long-lasting vocal issues could be caused by serious underlying issues.
The medical term for swallowing difficulties is dysphagia. Some patients have difficulty swallowing certain foods while others can’t swallow at all. Those experiencing coughing or choking when eating may be suffering from dysphagia.
Repeated issues with breathing, ear pain and sinus infections can sometimes be attributed to enlarged adenoids. An adenoidectomy is the removal of this gland that sits behind the nose, high at the back of the throat.
