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:

At 13 months of follow up after her feminization laryngoplasty with thyrohyoid elevation, she notices that her voice has continued to improve gradually over time. She has done some speech therapy and feels that that has contributed to the result as well. She is called as a female on the phone 100% of the time.
