After a brain tumor paralyzed my right vocal cord, my quality of life was severly impacted. I could barely talk above a whisper and the ‘breathiness’ in my voice made understanding me almost impossible. The vocal cord implant procedure performed by Dr. Lindsey Arviso removed the ‘breathiness’ and returned my voice to its normal sound. In addition, it helped alleviate the choking and swallowing issues that were another adverse effect of the tumor. The return to a normal quality of life was overwhelming. I’m once again able to interact normally with family and friends.
