There have been many advances in microsurgery for voice professionals over the last three decades. Driven by a greater understanding of the anatomy and physiology of phonation, most of the advances provide greater surgical precision through improved exposure and more delicate instrumentation.

Video procedures for surgical management of voice disorders accompany this content online.
