Physicians who specialize in voice and swallowing disorders at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center are fellowship-trained surgeons. These specialists receive training above the level most ENT specialists receive. Half of the fellowship specialists in all of Ohio can be found at Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center.
Our patients range from anyone who’s coughing more than they should be to nationally renowned touring singers with vocal impairment. We see more patients for paradoxical vocal cord motion disorder (PVCMD) – a vocal cord abnormality that mimics asthma – than any other facility in the United States. We’re considered among the world’s experts on PVCMD, partly because our academic affiliation enables us to conduct research that leads to better diagnosis and treatment.
Where your only option elsewhere may be surgery, we often offer various other safe and effective alternatives. For example, we helped develop an in-office injection procedure that has enabled patients with vocal cord paralysis avoid more invasive surgery.
