Hearing Aids Repair and Services
Organic voice disorders, such as vocal nodules, cysts, polyps, and laryngectomy, can significantly impact an individual's ability to produce clear and healthy speech. At Mythri Speech & Hearing Center, we specialize in the assessment and treatment of organic voice disorders, offering comprehensive care and support to individuals seeking to regain their voice and improve communication.
Understanding Organic Voice Disorders and Laryngectomy
Organic voice disorders result from structural changes or lesions on the vocal folds, which affect the vibration and functioning of the vocal cords. Conditions such as vocal nodules, cysts, polyps, and laryngectomy can cause hoarseness, breathiness, voice fatigue, and even complete loss of voice. Laryngectomy, a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the larynx, can result in a permanent loss of the vocal folds and requires alternative methods of communication.
