Voice Therapy at University Hospitals Helps to Increase Vocal Quality

Speech-language pathologists at the Center for Rehabilitation Services at University Hospitals play a key role in assisting patients suffering from vocal disorders such as:

  • Dysphonia
  • Hoarseness
  • Resonance disorders
  • Vocal fold nodules

Working collaboratively with the referring physician and the physical medicine physician, our highly trained speech-language pathologists are a vital component of the successful Voice & Swallowing Center at University Hospitals Ear, Nose & Throat Institute. Within this specialty center, our speech-language pathologists work alongside a variety of specialists such as otolaryngologists (ENT physicians) for improved outcomes.

  • Increased diaphragmatic breathing
  • Relaxation therapies
  • Resonance voice therapy
