- State-of-the-art treatments: You'll have access to a board-certified laryngologist who offers advanced technology, including voice-preserving phonomicrosurgery, a highly specialized surgery to improve your voice using microscopic techniques and highly magnified views.
- Coordination with other specialists: Your care is coordinated by all the right specialists you need — including gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, allergists, oncologists and neurologists — and you'll have full access to a network of vocal coaches and behavioral medicine specialists.
