Rapid technological innovation, a growing interest in voice care, and evolving scientific discovery have helped catalyze rapid advances in the surgical care of voice patients. In this article, I will review new and emerging technologies in voice management from the perspective of the otolaryngologist. Advances include improved methods for visualizing the larynx, newer light applications that hold promise for early stage detection and monitoring of epithelial disease, and office-based methods for performing biopsies and physiological testing. In addition, I will review newer treatment options such as lasers, vocal fold injectables, and minimally invasive techniques for manipulating the arytenoid. Finally, I will present new frontiers in research for patients with lamina propria disease. Speech-language pathologists must be aware of new technologies as they emerge to assure the best possible care of voice patients.
