Laryngology


Laryngology as a speciality under ENT deals with illnesses and disorders associated with the voice box or larynx. The larynx is responsible for producing sound and swallowing.

Most disorders of the larynx can be caused by strain to the vocal cords through misuse of voice. Since the treatment of the larynx is highly tailor made depending on age, occupation and seriousness, we at Dr Rao’s ENT provide personalized treatment depending on your condition.
