Vocal Fold Scarring
Among the Nation's Best for Ear, Nose & Throat
U.S.News & World Report has named Jefferson among the best hospitals in the nation for ENT.
A vocal fold scar refers to a stiffening of the vocal folds that can affect voice, and it usually results from damage to the larynx from disease, accident or surgery. You may be experiencing hoarseness in your voice, with sore or tight neck muscles while trying to speak.
Voice care at the Jefferson Voice and Swallowing Center is tailored to your acute needs and long-term goals. Our otolaryngologists can recommend effective means to prevent continued scarring and may suggest additional treatments when necessary.
