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.

A collaborative effort between Memorial Hermann-TMC and the Texas Voice Performance Institute (TVPI) at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, this comprehensive voice program is led by a fellowship-trained laryngologist.  Skilled at caring for patients who are considered poor candidates for general anesthesia due to physical condition, this team can perform a variety of procedures on patients while awake to determine whether a need for further surgery under general anesthesia exists.

  • Medical and surgical care for professional voice users
  • Spasmodic dysphonia 
  • Vocal fold paralysis and paresis
