Get it done in a center equipped with a Surgical LASER. This is a short stay surgery and recovery is almost instantaneous! I usually discharge my patient 2 hours after surgery after the effects of anaesthesia have worn off!

Hello.......Vocal cord nodules are benign (noncancerous) growths on both vocal cords that are caused by vocal abuse. Traditional standard of care management of vocal cord nodules is voice therapy and avoidance of any activities leading to voice abuse (screaming, yelling, etc). However, resolution of nodules with such behavior focused treatment takes months.
