The Voice Assessment Centre is devoted to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of voice disorders.
Our multidisciplinary team consists of Dr Ian Cole and Dr Georgina Harris, Ear Nose Throat surgeons specialising in voice, and speech pathologists Cecilia Pemberton and Pauline Dooley.
We manage professional singers, actors, lawyers and other professional voice users including transgender patients, lawyers, clergy, teachers and call centre operators.
Our state-of-the-art equipment to examine the vocal folds includes fiberoptic nasendoscopy and videostroboscopy. These allow us to assess fine details of the vocal folds whilst they are vibrating and enabling diagnosis in patients with poor projection or weak voice.
We specialise in treatment of vocal fold paralysis and in "voice lift" and laser procedures as well as external surgery of the larynx. We conduct on-going treatment if required and liaise with other specialists including neurologists, gastroenterologists, respiratory physicians, speech pathologists and singing teachers.
