Throat Education

Tonsillectomy & Adenoidectomy

The tonsils are located on each side of the back wall of the throat, just above and behind the tongue. The adenoids are found above and behind the roof of the mouth – where the nose and mouth join.


The tongue is one of the most important muscles for speech and swallowing. For this reason having tongue-tie can lead to eating or speech problems, which may be serious in some individuals.

Microlaryngoscopy and Bronchoscopy

Microlaryngoscopy does not usually require an overnight stay in the hospital. It is generally performed under general anesthesia (the patient is asleep during the procedure) with the patient lying on the back.

Care of the Professional Voice

The Care of the Professional Voice Division has been organized to diagnose and treat a wide variety of voice disorders that affect both voice professionals and the general public.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Voice Problems

Voice disorders may be the first sign of a general disease or illness. The Voice Center keeps up to date with the latest research, therapy approaches and surgical options.

Acid Reflux

When we eat something, the food reaches the stomach by traveling down a muscular tube called the esophagus.

Vocal Hygiene Practices

Less is more if we think of vocal longevity. Do not speak excessively. Try reducing the amount of voice use and increasing the frequency of vocal rest periods. This is especially important when suffering from vocal or generalized fatigue.
