Vocal Cord Paralysis

Vocal cord paralysis is diagnosed and treated at Peak ENT with non-surgical and surgical methods. Specialized in-office equipment and fellowship training makes the Voice Center at Peak ENT unique and sought after by professional and non-professional individuals relying on their vocal abilities.

The video below shows a patient (not the one above) with left vocal cord paralysis that resulted from a lung cancer. In this case the recurrent laryngeal nerve that is responsible for vocal cord movement is affected by the cancer.
