Laryngeal Laser Surgery - An Unsedated, Office Procedure for Laryngeal Dysplasia

Pulsed angiolytic lasers (KTP, PDL) give us the ability to treat pre-cancerous growths of the vocal folds and larynx in a minimally invasive fashion.  Without sedation, and with the assistance of state-of-the art video laryngoscopes, we can remove small growths without any sedation.  Anesthesia is given topically, and the procedures are well tolerated by the majority of individuals.  Above are pre and post photos of a patient with recurrent right vocal cord dysplasia (pre-cancerous growth).
