Am I a candidate for a laryngoplasty?
Laryngoplasty is recommended on patients suffering from vocal cord paralysis due to an injury, stroke, trauma, or neurological conditions. We recommend you to refer to one of our ENT surgeons for an evaluation to determine if this surgery is best for you.
How do I prepare for a laryngoplasty?
As with any surgery, your otolaryngologist will perform a physical examination before the procedure, you will be asked to not eat or drink at least 8 hours before the procedure. Tell your surgeon If you’re taking medications or supplements.
What can I expect during recovery?
Patients can expect mild discomfort in the first days. You will need to rest your voice for 3 to 7 days, this involves no talking, throat clearing, whispering, or any activity that can produce forceful vocal closure.
