Vocal Cord Diseases Surgery

Treatment for vocal cord diseases is determined by the cause, severity of symptoms, and length of time since onset of symptoms. Voice therapy, bulk injections, surgery, or a combination of treatments may be used to treat the condition. Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, the operator, will advise you on the best option based on her extensive experience.


Bulk Injection

Paralysis of the nerve to your vocal cord will likely leave the vocal cord muscle thin and weak. A doctor who specialises in laryngeal disorders may inject a substance such as body oil, collagen, or another approved filler into your vocal cord to add volume to a paralysed vocal cord. The affected vocal cord is strengthened by the extra bulk. When you speak, swallow, or cough, the opposing and moving vocal cord can make closer contact with the paralysed cord. Examinations performed by our experienced surgeon, Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, will determine the need for vocal cord strengthening.



Your airflow will be reduced if both of your vocal cords are paralysed and close together. You will have a difficult time breathing in this situation, and you will require a tracheotomy surgery. Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ and her team will conduct an investigation into the incident at this time. Because tracheotomy is such a delicate procedure, choosing an experienced physician like Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ is a wise decision.


Voice Therapy

Exercises or other activities to strengthen your vocal cords, improve breath control during speech, prevent abnormal tension in the paralysed vocal cord or other muscles around the cords, and protect your airway while swallowing are all part of voice therapy sessions. If your vocal cords are paralysed in a location that doesn't require additional volume or repositioning, voice therapy may be your only option.
