Located in Midtown Manhattan, The Voice Institute of New York is one of the most comprehensive voice centers in the United States, providing medical services for people with voice problems and other disorders of the larynx (voice box). Specialized clinical services are available for people with vocal misuse and overuse syndromes, recurrent laryngitis, spasmodic dysphonia, vocal cord paralysis, the aging voice, cancer of the vocal cord, scarred vocal cords, and benign vocal cord growths, such as nodules, polyps, cysts, granulomas, and papillomas.
The Institute’s Director, Dr. Jamie Koufman has been a leading clinician and researcher in the field of laryngology and the voice for more than 25 years. As an educator, Dr. Koufman has lectured widely across the United States and abroad.
The Voice Institute of New York is uniquely qualified to serve patients with voice disorders, because at present there is fragmentation of medical services both nationally and within the city of New York. The institute provides the most advanced cutting-edge diagnostics and treatments, including office-based, laryngeal laser surgery, all under one roof.
Specifically, The Voice Institute of New York has leading-edge expertise in six areas of laryngology:
- Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR)
- Laryngeal & voice reconstruction surgery
- Treatment of rare laryngeal tumors & diseases
- Advanced treatments for spasmodic dysphonia (SD)
- Minimally-invasive office-based laryngeal laser surgery
- Care of the professional voice (esp. singers and actors)
