Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum.
Laryngoscopy and Microlaryngeal surgery are performed to address disorders of the larynx (voice box) and hypopharynx (lowest portion of the throat) . These procedures can biopsy, remove or augment abnormal tissues in the throat.
Under general anesthesia, a Laryngoscope is gently inserted into the throat through the mouth. A microscope and long, fine instruments are used to perform the surgery.
Laryngoscopy and microlaryngeal surgery are generally performed on an outpatient basis. If you have medical conditions such as sleep apnea or bleeding disorders your surgeon may insist that you spend one night in the hospital for observation. Hospital admission may be required if excess bleeding or swelling are encountered during the procedure .
Voice rest (no talking) is recommended for one week following the surgery unless your surgeon has directed otherwise. If you must use your voice during the first week avoid whispering, shouting and singing. Speak with your normal voice for limited periods of time.
