The expert laryngologists and speech-language pathologists at the Washington University Voice & Airway Center offer the latest innovations in medical and surgical treatments for problems that affect the voice, upper airway, and ability to swallow.

The Voice & Airway Center is the exclusive provider of voice care for St. Louis Opera Theatre.

Our multi-disciplinary approach enables us to offer a tailored treatment strategy for each patient. We recognize the importance of voice and swallowing on a patient’s quality of life.

Our speech-language pathologists offer specific and nuanced therapy to address voice and swallowing problems. Our physicians offer the latest innovative diagnostic and procedural treatments for dysphonia, dysphagia, and dyspnea, including awake treatment of laryngeal disease, Botox injections, fine microsurgical dissection of the larynx, treatment of vocal paralysis, and Zenker’s diverticulum.
