Diagnosing and Treating Voice Disorders
We diagnose and treat the full spectrum of voice disorders, from laryngitis and voice strain to more complex problems such as atrophy, hemorrhage, scarring of the vocal cords, vocal tremor, and laryngeal papilloma. We can also help with voice problems related to acid reflux (GERD), allergies, chronic cough, and swallowing dysfunction.
If you have been hoarse for more than two weeks, you should be evaluated by an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor.
Why Choose Duke for Voice Disorders
Your care begins with a comprehensive voice evaluation. We use advanced equipment and testing techniques to identify whether you have a voice disorder and, if so, we recommend appropriate treatment.
A Team of Specialists
You will receive coordinated care from a team that includes laryngologists and speech pathologists. Our providers have advanced training in evaluating and treating the full range of voice and swallowing problems.
If you have other medical conditions that may contribute to your voice disorder -- such as allergies, asthma, or acid reflux -- we will work with your other providers throughout Duke Health to ensure you receive the best care from an integrated team.
