Osborne Head and Neck Institute Case Presentation:
The patient is a 40 year old female who has had significant vocal symptoms for several months. She has noted a decrease in her vocal range and increased effort during phonation. She previously saw a laryngologist, who diagnosed her with a vocal polyp. She was referred for voice therapy, but based on her failure to improve, went back to her surgeon for a surgical consultation. She did not feel comfortable with the recommendation and sought a second opinion here at the Osborne Head and Neck Institute.
