As a laryngologist, Dr. Verma treats both everyday and complex “throat” conditions including disorders of voice, breathing and swallowing. Many people seek care for routine conditions such as a slight change in voice or lump in the throat sensation.
Voice changes can include a weak voice that can’t be heard by others, a rough or “scratchy” voice that is difficult to understand, or strained voice that makes it difficult to produce sound. Swallowing problems include difficult passing foods or liquids, feeling of foods going down the “wrong pipe” a sensation of foods getting stuck while eating. Breathing disorders managed include tracheal stenosis where individuals are commonly short of breath.
