Thyroplasty

Thyroplasty

Thyroplasty is a procedure used to treat vocal cord paralysis, paresis (weakness) of the voice or age-related changes to the voice. During the procedure, the vocal cord is repositioned with an implant, which results in immediate improvement in voice and often swallowing. The procedure, while performed in the operating room and requiring a one-night stay in the hospital, does not require general anesthesia, thus reducing the risks often associated with surgery.
