Audio (before-and-after)

Presently this page is limited to audio examples of pitch surgeries. All of the "Before" recordings were made with professional equipment in my office. Many of the "After" recordings were made over the telephone or on the patient's computer and this will affect the audio quality.

Dr. Thomas' comments:

This recording is at two months post surgery, and her pitch is significantly elevated already.

Patient's comments:

I am perceived as female 100% of the time on the phone and at drive in ordering. My volume is adequate, but lower than before surgery.

Prior voice surgery: Cricothyroid approximation
Year of surgery: 2015

Dr. Thomas' comments:

She had a cricothyroid approximation 2 year earlier. Her voice was initially very high, but then fell back to a lower pitch. So her "before voice" in this recording is after a cricothyroid approximation and her after voice is 5 months after the Feminization Laryngoplasty.
