Voice and Speech Disorders
Staffed by laryngologists and speech-language pathologists with specialized expertise in the evaluation and treatment of voice and throat disorders, the Voice and Speech Laboratory provides exceptional care from professionals with advanced training and extensive experience in the area of voice and speech.
At the Voice and Speech Laboratory at Mass. Eye and Ear, we know that voice disorders are a problem – in your job, your social life and your hobbies.
Our team of dedicated voice rehabilitation professionals will help you bring your best voice into all of the activities in your life, whether you are going out to dinners out with friends, singing in a musical or giving an important business presentation.
Head and Neck Cancer Care
We are equipped to deliver the highest standard of care for our patients who have lost their voice box to cancer – offering tracheo-esophageal puncture management, as well as specialized therapy to retrain patients to speak without vocal folds.
Singers, actors, announcers, teachers and attorneys are among the professionals who depend on their voice for their livelihood. A number of voice therapists on our staff are also performers and vocal instructors. We understand the unique challenges professional voice users face and are prepared to be your partner in your vocal recovery.
In addition to our clinical work with performers, Voice and Speech Laboratory staff members provide lectures and support for students and teachers of the many fine performing arts colleges in the Boston area, including the Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory.
Research and Education
As active participants within the voice and speech community, we are committed to sharing our knowledge at conferences, through presentations and in publications.
