Vocal-Cord Injection

Vocal-Cord Injection

Vocal-cord injection (vocal fold augmentation/laryngoplasty) is a procedure in which gel-like filler is injected directly into the vocal cord. It is used to reposition the vocal cords and improve the voice and often the ability to swallow. While this procedure has been historically performed in the operating room under general anesthesia, our physicians can perform this procedure using local anesthesia in an office setting, allowing the patient to avoid general anesthesia and in most cases return home the same day as the surgery.
