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:

She had a cricothyroid approximation 2 years earlier and felt that her pitch had dropped back down. We tried a surgical (microlaryngoscopy with CO2 laser) laser tuning.  I was not impressed that the laser tightening added anything to her vocal pitch.
