Abstract

The evaluation and treatment process for dysphonia due to benign vocal fold lesions (BVFL) can often be a complex and confusing process for clinicians as well as patients. There is no one perfect method, and there are many different approaches to this problem. It is our goal to share our multidisciplinary team evaluation process, decision-making approach, and treatment for patients with these types of voice fold lesions. Our goal is to highlight the teamwork and cross disciplinary cooperation that optimizes patient evaluation and care.
