Spasmodic dysphonia is an area of special expertise at the Institute. Spasmodic dysphonia is a frustrating, chronic condition for which no cure is currently known. However, it is only rarely associated with other diseases. In most cases, treatment can substantially improve symptoms, often resulting in a near-normal voice. Because, in the end, the affected person is the best judge of his or her voice function, honest and open communication between the doctor and the patient is essential in getting the most out of treatment and overcoming the disorder.
At The Voice and Swallowing Institute, we believe that providing patients with information about this complex disease is an essential part of treatment.
