Vocal fold injuries


Vocal fold (vocal cord) injuries, also known as vocal fold lesions, are benign (noncancerous) growths that include nodules, polyps and cysts.  All can cause voice changes like hoarseness and may be associated with vocal overuse or vocal fold trauma.

"Liz Platt was wonderful to work with. I visited her only once before my surgery. She immediately gave me exercises to work on after the surgery before we met again. When we met after my surgery, she was able to pinpoint what my issues were (the surgeon said I was at risk for doing the same thing to my vocal cords in the future) and gave me tons of strategies to get my voice to be the best it can be. She is very knowledgable and I only wished I would have gone to see her months before my surgery. I highly recommend her for any vocal cord related issues." - Denise Swanson
