Throat and Voice Care
State-of-the-art care for vocal health
Voice or swallowing difficulties can interfere with speaking, eating and drinking, and can greatly affect your ability to function. The symptoms can also be an indication of underlying disease, so ENT doctors consult with specialists in gastroenterology, internal medicine, neurology and other disciplines to provide multidisciplinary care. Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center provides a full range of diagnostic and treatment services for voice and swallowing disorders.
Ear, nose and throat doctors utilize advanced imaging technology and voice-specific assessments to diagnose problems and develop an effective treatment plan. They also work closely with speech therapists to address all aspects of these conditions. Our multidisciplinary team provides patient-centered care for disorders such as:
- Chronic cough and throat pain
- Hoarseness, laryngitis, or conditions that affect the vocal folds or cords
- Laryngopharyngeal and gastroesophageal reflux
- Sleep-related disorders, such as chronic snoring and sleep apnea
- Swallowing difficulties (dysphagia)
- Tonsil and adenoid infections
Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center offers a range of treatment options, including the latest surgical techniques, medications and other therapeutic services, including voice and speech therapy delivered by speech pathologists. Speech or voice therapy can help facilitate healing after treatment, and can be used as a primary treatment for correcting some speech-related disorders.
