The Penn Center for Voice, Speech and Swallowing in Philadelphia provides a comprehensive program dedicated to the treatment of a wide range of voice and swallowing disorders suffered by singers, actors, teachers, public speakers or anyone else who has a voice, speech or swallowing disorder.
Most people take their voice — a vital part of everyday life — for granted. Having a voice or swallowing disorder can greatly limit a person’s ability to eat, drink or communicate comfortably. Sometimes a mild voice disorder can be a sign of a more significant health problem.
Clinicians at the Center evaluate, diagnose and treat a wide range of voice and swallowing disorders affecting anyone from the professional vocalist to the general public.
The Penn Center for Voice, Speech and Swallowing offers patients comprehensive diagnostic and treatment options including state-of-the-art medical, surgical and behavioral care for the voice and swallowing systems.
The Center uses a multidisciplinary approach to develop individualized treatment plans for every patient. In most cases, patients are able to see the entire team of otolaryngologists, speech language pathologists and trained nurses all within the same day.
Clinicians and therapists at the center provide patients with the best treatment options available to preserve the highest level of voice and swallowing function.
