Laryngology involves the diagnosis and management of functional and structural abnormalities of the larynx. The complex nature of the larynx, its vital role in preventing food entering the lung and its essential function in the production of speech upon which most communication is based and the expertise needed to diagnose and treat a spectrum of pathologies has led to the development of this subspecialty. Swallowing disorders are often closely related to the function of the larynx and affect patients not only with laryngeal pathology, but also who have had strokes or who have received radiation therapy. The Division of Laryngology is a local leader in the field of dysphagia with a dedicated clinic to patients with swallowing problems.
