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.

She had two KTP laser tunings after Feminization Laryngoplasty to smooth out an initially rough voice. She does smoke cigarettes. We are going to perform another laser tune up in the near future.

Dr. Thomas' comments:

Her initial surgery was complicated by an infection and a temporary tracheostomy. She had revision surgery with only slight improvement. Looking back 5 years later at her video recording her voice would be improved with a laser vocal cord tightening which I was not doing at that time.
