Comprehensive Voice Program

Throat Exam 2The voice program at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center provides comprehensive medical and surgical treatment of patients with voice and swallowing disorders. The program treats patients with a broad range of disorders from hoarseness and injured voice to neurologic diseases of the head and neck.
