What is a laryngologist? A laryngologist is an otolaryngologist (ear nose and throat doctor) specializing in diseases of the voice box and the airway. Most laryngologists have completed an addional fellowship in voice disorders and laryngeal surgery beyond the usual training requirements for an otolaryngologist. There are laryngologists in most major metropolitan areas throughout the United States and throughout the world.
Many laryngologists work out of a voice center, which is a facility containing specialized equipment and personel for the treatment of voice disorders. The team often includes a speech and language pathologist specializing in voice, and sometimes a voice coach.
