Determining the Right Treatment at the Right Time

Difficulty swallowing, hoarseness, and throat pain are common ENT complaints that can be caused by several different entities including infection, inflammation, acid reflux, and growths such as vocal cord polyps or throat cancer. Using small flexible fiber optic endoscopes, we can visualize the voice box and the beginning of the esophagus and help determine the cause of the voice or swallowing problem. Treatment can include voice rest, medications, speech or swallowing therapy, or surgery.
