State-of-the-art treatment from experts you can trust
Your voice, your breathing, your ability to swallow. These are all things you may take for granted — until you have a problem with one of them.
The Voice, Airway and Swallowing Disorders Program offers advanced diagnosis and treatment for a full range of voice disorders, airway disorders and swallowing disorders — from the common, such as laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), to the most complex and rare.
Our laryngologist works collaboratively with a variety of other specialists at Rush to bring you the comprehensive care needed to address these key functions of communication. She sees patients of all ages and welcome those seeking a second opinion after either an initial diagnosis or unsuccessful prior treatment.
Excellence in Voice, Airway and Swallowing Care
Our laryngologist is dedicated to treating voice, airway and swallowing disorders — a level of subspecialty focus that ensures you’re receiving the highest level of care and the very latest treatment advances. She also works collaboratively with a variety of other specialists at Rush to bring you the comprehensive care needed to address these key functions of communication.
Convenient in-office procedures
We are able to perform many procedures in the office rather than the operating room: This helps keep you out of the hospital and allows for real-time assessment of issues that may be affecting your breathing, swallowing and/or voice.
Specialized care for the professional voice
Part of the Voice, Airway and Swallowing Disorders Program, the Professional Voice Program at Rush offers comprehensive, world-class care for singers, actors, teachers, members of the clergy, politicians, public speakers, presenters and others whose careers depend on their voices. This includes same-day appointments for urgent vocal issues.
Nationally recognized program
The ENT program at Rush is consistently ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report and is the highest-ranked ENT program in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.
Coordinated care for co-existing conditions
If you are suffering from a combination of symptoms, including coughing, breathing problems, persistent sinus pain and pressure, and sleep disturbances, you may benefit from the one-stop approach at the Rush Center for Airway Diseases.
The center, the first of its kind in the Chicago area, brings together specialists from allergy/immunology, laryngology, pulmonology, rhinology and sleep surgery to care for people who have co-existing sinusitis, allergies, asthma and/or sleep apnea. When you have more than one of these conditions at the same time, effective treatment requires the expertise of more than one specialist. Our team coordinates all of your care, so you can get the relief you need to lead a full, active life.
