LARYNGOSCOPY

Laryngoscopy is a procedure performed to examine the vocal folds. This is a surgical procedure performed in the operating room with the patient asleep. A laryngoscope, or hollow metal tube, is inserted into the mouth and advanced to the vocal folds.

A microscope or telescope provides a magnified view of the vocal folds. Through the laryngoscope instruments may be used to perform biospies of lesions, or even completely remove lesions such as cysts or polyps.

Through laryngoscopy, surgery such as cancer excision may be performed in a minimally-invasive manner.
