Vocal Cord Injection

Patients who experience vocal cord paralysis as the result of neurological trauma, surgical injury, or muscle weakness may be candidates for injection laryngoplasty (vocal cord injections), a procedure in which the vocal cords are injected with gel-foam or another permanent substance to restore your voice and eliminate choking and shortness of breath. Most vocal cord injuries are temporary and heal on their own within a year, but if necessary, additional injections can be given.
