New Procedure Treats Vocal Cords Without Surgery

May 18, 2010

A new treatment at the Vanderbilt Voice Center, in Nashville, Tennessee, can treat vocal cord problems in minutes in a regular exam room.

Traditionally, treating vocal cord problems required surgery in the operating room, and general anesthesia for the patient.

The new Pulsed Dye Laser, inserted down the throat, treats vocal cord problems while the patient is awake.
