What is Vocal Cord Surgery?

Vocal cord surgery, also known as laryngeal surgery, is a medical procedure that involves the treatment of conditions affecting the vocal cords, which are part of the larynx or voice box. The vocal cords are located in the throat and play a crucial role in speech and singing.

Vocal cord surgery is typically performed by an otolaryngologist, also known as an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor, who specializes in conditions of the head and neck. Recovery time and potential complications will depend on the specific type of surgery performed. It's important to discuss the risks and benefits of vocal cord surgery with a qualified medical professional before undergoing any procedure.

Vocal Cord Surgery- Diagnosis and Surgery

Diagnosis of Vocal Cord Conditions:

Flexible laryngoscopy: This test involves the use of a thin, flexible tube with a camera on the end that is inserted through the nose or mouth to view the vocal cords.
Videostroboscopy: This test uses a specialized camera to view the vocal cords in slow motion, allowing for a more detailed examination.

Electromyography (EMG): This test measures the electrical activity of the vocal cords and can be used to diagnose vocal cord paralysis or other nerve-related conditions.
Biopsy: If cancer is suspected, a tissue sample may be taken from the vocal cords for examination under a microscope.

Surgery for Vocal Cord Conditions

Once a diagnosis is made, surgery may be recommended as a treatment option for some vocal cord conditions. The type of surgery recommended will depend on the specific condition being treated. Some common types of vocal cord surgery include:

  • Microsurgery: This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses specialized instruments to remove small growths, such as polyps or nodules, from the vocal cords.
  • Thyroplasty: This surgery involves implanting a small device in the larynx to improve vocal cord movement and reduce the impact of paralysis.
  • Cordotomy: This is a type of laser surgery that is used to remove part of the vocal cord tissue to improve vocal cord closure.
  • Laryngectomy: In cases of severe cancer or other conditions, the entire larynx may need to be removed. This surgery will require significant rehabilitation to learn to speak without vocal cords.

FAQs Around Parotid Surgery In Bangalore

Is vocal cord surgery permanent?

The results of vocal cord surgery can be permanent, but this depends on the specific type of surgery and the underlying condition being treated. For example, surgery to remove a benign growth such as a polyp or nodule from the vocal cords can provide a permanent cure if the growth does not return. Similarly, vocal cord augmentation surgery, which involves injecting a substance into the vocal cords to improve their function, can provide long-lasting results.

Is vocal cord surgery painful?r

Vocal cord surgery is not painful because it is performed under anesthesia. You may experience minor discomfort in your throat, jaw-dropping, soreness in your mouth, and pain. If necessary, the pain can be treated with over-the-counter medications prescribed by your ENT doctor.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Vocal Cord Surgery?

The recovery time of vocal cord surgery can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the surgery. In general, most people can return to normal activities within a week or two, but it may take several weeks for the voice to recover fully. Therefore, it is crucial to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon and avoid activities that may strain the vocal cords, such as singing or speaking loudly, until cleared by the surgeon. Attending all scheduled follow-up appointments is also essential to monitor the healing process.
