What is microscopic laryngeal surgery?

Microscopic laryngeal surgery, otherwise known as micro laryngoscopy, is the most precise means of visualizing and operating on the vocal folds.

It allows the use of the two most essential toolsets in laryngeal surgery: the operative microscope, and micro laryngeal dissection instruments. All surgery is done through a laryngoscope, an instrument inserted via the mouth, without the need to make skin incisions.

What is microscopic laryngeal surgery used for?

Microlaryngoscopy is a surgical technique used in the evaluation and removal of various lesions of the vocal folds, including (but not limited to): cancer, cysts, papilloma, polyps, and Reinke’s edema.

Treatment and Procedure:

Micro laryngeal surgery is performed through a laryngoscope, a thin lighted tube with a camera on the end that allows the doctor to visualize the area with great precision. Once the laryngoscope is inserted through the nose into the throat, and the lesion is located, the surgeon removes the abnormal growth using tiny surgical tools that have been threaded through the laryngoscope to the affected site. Because this technique permits the surgeon to operate with great accuracy, only the damaged tissue is excised. The surrounding area remains unharmed.

Following the procedure, the patient is monitored for several hours before returning home. Most patients experience some level of discomfort after the surgery but often respond well to over-the-counter pain relievers. If the pain is more significant, a corticosteroid may be prescribed for short-term use. Acid reflux medication may also be recommended to ensure that stomach acid does not irritate the healing tissue. Complete voice rest is required during the initial weeks following surgery. Postoperative voice therapy is typically prescribed to assist in improving and maintaining voice quality.

While micro laryngeal surgery is extremely safe, like any surgery, it involves some risks. These include the risk of allergic reaction to general anesthesia or medication and the risk of developing breathing difficulties, especially in individuals with pre-existing heart or lung problems. Specific risks from the pressure of the laryngoscope include pain or numbness to the tongue or lips or, more rarely, dental injury.
