Voice and swallowing care at CEENTA
Our state-of-the-art Voice and Swallowing Center provides patients with a single place to go for the evaluation, treatment and prevention of voice and swallowing disorders. By offering total voice care — including preventive, diagnostic and a full range of treatment for pediatric and adult patients —CEENTA provides a level of care unmatched in the region. The Center’s unique, multidisciplinary team of otolaryngologists, laryngologists and speech-language pathologists attracts patients from around our region, including many professional singers, actors, teachers and other voice professionals. To ensure your patient receives the most comprehensive care possible, we also work closely with other specialists, including gastroenterologists, pulmonologists and neurologists. The Center’s Head and Neck Dysphagia Clinic allows our physicians to evaluate and treat patients with head and neck cancer before, during and following their treatments. This unique, multidisciplinary approach attracts patients from around our region.
The Department was founded in 1991 at Presbyterian Hospital as a collaborative effort by the hospital, several ear, nose, and throat specialists and Dr. Terri Gerlach. Growth of the program and direct collaboration with many of the ear, nose, and throat doctors at CEENTA lead to the establishment and further development of this specialized program here at CEENTA in 2006.
