If you have been down with a sore throat for a week or much longer, you may need to visit The Medical City Clark’s Voice and Swallowing Center.
This specialized center provides care for disorders of the upper airway, larynx and trachea that affect speech, breathing and swallowing.
You may be required to undergo further tests so do not delay your visit to the doctor if you do not feel well.
In rigid laryngoscopy, a doctor makes use of a tube called a scope to look deep into your throat and voice box or larynx. You will be asleep during the procedure.
This procedure is done for many reasons. The doctor may want to take a tissue sample for a biopsy or he may remove growths from your vocal chords. Sometimes, the doctor may remove an object stuck in the throat or he may need to perform other surgery or laser treatments.
