Physicians

This list consists of physicians who practice laryngology, who may be known as laryngologists, phonosurgeons, phoniatrists, voice surgeons or at least seem to have a major interest in voice disorders. Their training in voice was likely after completing a residency in ENT or otorhinolaryngology.

The general political considerations of working with many of the people below preclude me from making a recommendation for or against them. It remains your responsibility to evaluate their talents for caring for you. See Choosing your doctor for my best effort at suggesting how I would evaluate the care you receive.

You may suggest a physician to be added to the list.

Dr. Zeitels practices at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and is an innovator of new surgical techniques for voice disorders. He offers a research fellowship in voice disorders. He has designed a very nice laryngoscope. His surgical skills are in a class by themselves - he is one of the leaders in the field. He is probably the most knowledgable historian on the field of voice disorders as well. He offers both a research and clinical fellowship in laryngology.
