Founding director Daniel A. Vincent, Jr. Florida E. Our Tampa speech-language pathologists have earned certifications of clinical competence in speech-pathology through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Laryngology is a subspecialty within otolaryngology. Laryngologists specialize in the treatment of disorders of the throat and larynx voice boxincluding communication and swallowing disorders.
Patients who require the care of a laryngologist are often individuals who use their voices professionally, such as singers, actors, public speakers or teachers. Other patients who seek laryngological treatment are individuals troubled by perpetual hoarseness, chronic cough or sore throat, difficulty swallowing or problems with voice projection. Laryngologists are trained to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of throat and voice problems.
These causes may include:. This diagnostic test may be done a number of ways, but always involves the insertion of some type of endoscope into the mouth or nose and down the back of the throat. Depending on the nature of the problem, a flexible or rigid tube may be used. The laryngoscope will always be fitted with a miniature camera so that the targeted area can be visualized and photographed for later analysis.
At times, a tiny video camera, a miniature mirror or a pulsating strobe light may also be used during the examination. The laryngoscope, in addition to being a diagnostic tool, provides treatment options since the doctor can insert tiny surgical instruments through the scope in order to remove tissue for biopsy. In certain cases, other diagnostic testing is necessary. When the patient is troubled by difficulty swallowing, for example, the laryngologist may administer a barium swallowing study.
In addition to surgical excisions performed during laryngoscopies, doctors have several other methods for treating disorders of the throat and larynx. At times, simple noninvasive treatments, such as breathing exercises, voice therapy, or medication for acid reflux may be all that is necessary to relieve symptoms. At other times, surgery may be necessary. It is possible that a tonsillectomy will be required to alleviate pressure and inflammation in the throat or that a thyroplasty, during which a patch of synthetic mesh is placed on the vocal cords, will be recommended.
Frequently injection laryngoplasty vocal cord injections are of help, although the iarnjections may have to be repeated. In more serious cases of injury or disease, particularly when there is a malignancy present, a full or partial removal of the larynx laryngectomy may be performed.
An endoscopic evaluation of swallowing is a test that may be performed to diagnose swallowing difficulties. Patients who suffer from dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, may undergo an endoscopy to determine the cause of their swallowing problem. The endoscopic evaluation of swallowing test is performed with a thin, lighted tube known as an endoscope.
The endoscope is then placed into the throat. Food coloring is then placed onto a variety of foods, and fed to the patient. The food coloring makes it easier for the doctor to see how the food travels down the throat. The doctor will then be able to view the throat and swallowing process on a computer screen.

He sat down with me and explained things about my condition that no other medical professional had done before. He took the time and was not afraid to tell me the things I needed to hear, not necessarily what I wanted to hear.
He knew I wanted to get better and he gave me the tools and provided the care to ensure I would rehabilitate to my fullest potential. He is actually excited to see his therapist; he is truly enjoying his sessions and we are already seeing improvement!

Were these results helpful?Brian provided us daily bonus stops in addition to the planned itinerary.
I loved that we didn't hit all the usual crowded tourists stops. We enjoyed our Iceland tour very much. The scenery is stunningly beautiful and the people so friendly. Nordic Visitor did a great job putting the tour together. It was so awesome we want to book another trip soon.
We can't thank you enough!. The accommodations were all very clean and the beds in all of them were very comfortable. Hotel staff were always helpful. The range of accommodation from former boarding schools to new hotels was interesting in itself and the variety added to the tour. The meals provided were excellent and high quality.
Florida Center for Voice & Swallowing
There was also a delicious variety of food. Our guide was possibly the best guide I have ever had on a guided tour. He shared with us his enormous knowledge of Iceland and made every effort to provide us with an understanding of the geology, history and social development of Iceland.
He had a great sense of humour and was kind and caring to everyone. I felt that the organisation by Nordic Visitor was excellent both before and during the tour. There was always someone on the telephone to answer queries before I arrived in Iceland. There was a small change to our itinerary and great efforts were made to compensate for that with an extra evening meal and additional visit to a small farm as well as a trip on a trawler in the Western Fjords.
These were much appreciated. My friend Lesley Hallett and I visited the Nordic Visitor Office in Reykjavik after our tour and were delighted to meet some of the staff. We recorded a short video of some of our immediate reactions to the tour. This was the first time I have used a travel company to plan and book our vacation. The process was very easy.We had Sergio primed for this venue even before he broke his major duck at The Masters.
He will be heavily backed for good reason. This is the major that everyone expected him to win first and he has had so many near misses too. If I could pick one player only, Sergio would be the man. I could go on but there is no point in explaining the plethora of reasons that Sergio is so fancied for this week.
On a course where position is going to be crucial and this guy does that better than most. In recent years Open Champions have won at least once in the season before The Open.
Leishman won in tough conditions against a stellar field at Bay Hill and brings in a decent Open record. He drives well on tough courses and to be honest, I have adopted him as a staple major bet. Yes, his swing is quirky. It may be 9 years since he won here, but he is trending perfectly. The pantomime villain returns. It looked like Poulter was done this time last year, but in recent weeks he has emerged as a genuine contender. Having earned his place at final qualifying, Poulter will relish a return to the venue that he claimed a 2nd place in 2008.
He will relish the challenge and in particular proving people wrong. Recent weeks have seen some competitive performances and with this confidence he will no doubt enjoy performing on the biggest stage once again. He may never be as famous as his father, but he did us proud last week in Scotland. His odds are just too tasty to ignore having already recorded a top 10 in The Open.
Big-hitters may not necessarily be among the favourites, but this man has game and I reckon that he is a great each-way punt. When you add new tips your followers will be notified by email, Twitter messages or by using unique link that lists tips in machine friendly format.
