The Texas Voice Center in Houston was founded in 1989 by Dr. Richard Stasney as a facility for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of voice disorders. Dr. Apurva A. Thekdi joined the practice in 2009, working alongside Dr. Stasney until his retirement at the end of December 2016. Dr. Thekdi is now the director of the Texas Voice center and is the laryngologist who will coordinate your voice care (for more information on Dr. Thekdi, please see the Doctors page.) State of the art equipment for visualization of the larynx is used, enabling the diagnosis of and subsequent optimal treatment recommendations for lesions not visible with traditional medical equipment. The Texas Voice Center provides a wide variety of services for the patient with voice problems, both professional voice users and lay persons.

Your voice is a representation of who you are to the world around you. It is as unique to each person as a fingerprint, providing a clue to the listener of your identity in the absence of visual contact. It allows you to communicate thoughts, needs, and emotions. It can be used for artistic impression or for intellectual argument. It allows you to communicate with others on many levels.
At the Texas Voice Center, we are committed to restoring your voice so that you can function to your full capacity. There are many reasons why a voice may be misbehaving, and many of these conditions are treatable. We have the latest, most sophisticated equipment for diagnosing laryngeal problems that are not detectable by conventional techniques. Our doctors and staff have over fifty years of experience in treating voice disorders. Our speech pathology department is particularly qualified to handle all types of voice disorders. If you are having a problem with your voice, even if you have been to another doctor, you deserve our professional attention.
