Mariano Rivera - Vocal Cord Problems

I am sharing this blog post from regarding Yankee star Mariano Rivera. While it sounds sexy, the term "scraping" is extremely inaccurate to describe the delicate process of surgery on the vocal folds. Phonomicrosurgery, the term we use to describe highly magnified and precise surgery of the vocal folds, is inaccurately described by this sports blogger. But we will have to excuse the blogger, because after all he is a sports writer rather than a medical one.
