Neurological Voice Disorders Program

At the Grabscheid Voice and Swallowing Center of Mount Sinai, neurological disorders that affect the larynx and vocal folds form an area of special focus, both for clinical care and research. These include:

  • Vocal fold paralysis
  • Spasmodic dysphonia
  • Voice disorders associated with Parkinson's Disease
  • Vocal tremor
  • Other disorders of involuntary movement of the larynx, such as tics and myoclonus
  • The Center offers expertise in neurolaryngology coupled with the latest techniques, such as laryngeal electromyography (EMG) and videokymography, to aid in the diagnosis of these disorders.  

    A complete range of rehabilitative options is available to patient with vocal fold paralysis, from voice therapy to various surgeries. As is the case with other voice disorders, there is no one single solution appropriate for every patient. The correct choice for you depends, first and foremost, on your personal needs. Other important factors are the reason for the condition and length of time the condition has been present. The specialists at the Voice and Swallowing Center will give you the information you need to make an informed, safe choice.

    The Center offers botulinum toxin therapy for a wide variety of movement disorders of the head & neck, including, of course, spasmodic dysphonia. Botulinum toxin has helped thousands of spasmodic dysphonia sufferers return to happy, productive lives. Speak to the team at the Center to learn about botulinum toxin and decide if it's appropriate for you.

    Research projects in neurolaryngology are principally concerned with the neural signals controlling laryngeal muscles that arise from the central nervous system and of sensory components of the vocal process, including tracheal and pharyngeal components. Advances in neurophysiology are often accompanied by development of improved diagnostic instruments and methods of clinical treatment.
