At The Voice and Swallowing Institute, we help people communicate more clearly, more easily, more effectively, and more beautifully
The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai's Voice and Swallowing Institute is dedicated to helping patients who suffer from vocal disorders, dysphagia, and other disorders related to the larynx and throat, and vocal cords.
We recognize that your symptoms - even minor ones - can be bothersome and even frightening to you.
We take very seriously the questions and concerns you have about your voice, and the effect that a voice disorder can have on your life - no matter how small or large the problem.
The Institute is cooperatively staffed by a team of specialists trained to address the needs of individuals with voice disorders and other problems related to the larynx. Our research program, dedicated to advancing the field of diagnosis and rehabilitation of voice disorders, assures you that the care you receive from us is based upon the very latest findings.
Most importantly, though, our staff will listen to you. Voice is a highly personal thing. What works for one person may not for another. A teacher, for instance, has very different voice requirements from an actor, yet both rely heavily on their voices. Therefore, our staff is committed to communicating with you, and arriving at an individually tailored treatment plan together with you.
The medical, surgical, therapeutic and vocal counseling services we provide are designed to meet the needs of our New York patients as well as our out-of-town visitors who may be in Manhattan (New York City) to give a performance or to attend a business meeting. If you have an urgent problem or if you are a performer, we can accommodate your immediate vocal needs.
Come meet our interdisciplinary team. If you are already working with an otolaryngologist, voice therapist, singing teacher or speech coach, we're also available for supplementary consultation.
