Treatment Options

Medical:
Various types of medications can improve different laryngeal disorders. These medications will be explained to you at length during you office visit and educational handouts will be provided.

Speech Therapy:
Speech therapy helps people who have trouble talking to other people. The services we provide include evaluation and treatment of speech, language, and hearing problems in children and adults. Our department works in conjunction with the laryngologists and audiologists to improve communication abilities of our patients. Speech therapy may be the only treatment needed for some voice disorders and also is used to aid in recovery after surgery of the larynx.

Jeremy Hathway, B.M., M.S.,CCC-SLP received his Bachelor’s of Music from Sam Houston State University in choral education and his Master’s of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Baylor University, where his main interest was voice disorders.  Prior to joining the Texas Voice Center team, he evaluated and treated patients with speech, language, voice, and swallowing disorders at multiple hospitals around the city.
