Practice Info

Voice is essential to our professional and personal lives, yet answers regarding hoarseness and other voice problems are often surprisingly hard to come by, even in New York. Even when such a problem lasts for weeks or months, it may be overlooked or dismissed as "laryngitis." We understand how limiting and frustrating a voice problem can be. In some cases, it is no exaggeration to call it disabling.


The Sean Parker Institute for the Voice in the Department of Otolaryngology at New York Presbyterian - Weill Cornell Medical Center is devoted to the accurate diagnosis and efficient treatment of voice problems. Voice difficulties can include:


* hoarseness

* limitations in volume and projection

* limitations in pitch, or pitch breaks

* voice fatigue

* voice spasms


Assessing the voice involves not only the latest technology, but also specially trained and talented personnel who understand the physical elements of voice production as well as its personal and subjective aspects. 

We treat a wide variety of voice problems in patients from all walks of life, from performing artists to attorneys to teachers to salespeople - in fact, everyone depends on his or her voice in the course of everyday life. Advanced techniques like videostroboscopy and laryngeal electromyography are available to identify subtle abnormalities.

Problems treated at the The Sean Parker Institute for the Voice include:


* polyps

* nodules

* vocal cord paralysis

* vocal cord cyst

* spasmodic dysphonia

* voice tremor

* vocal cord cancer

* granuloma

* vocal cord scar

* hemorrhage

* sulcus vocalis

* papilloma

* Reinke's edema


The Sean Parker Institute for the Voice offers both medical and surgical treatments, including:


* vocal cord microsurgery (microlaryngoscopy)

* vocal cord injections

* laryngeal botulinum toxin (Botox) injections

* medialization thyroplasty (laryngoplasty) for vocal cord paralysis and paresis


Most voice problems can be treated and many do not require surgery. Our staff will work closely with you to provide all the information and guidance you need to make the best choices regarding your voice.
