Treatment of Voice Disorders, Second Edition presents the entire range of behavioral, medical and surgical voice treatment options from the perspective of a variety of specialist practitioners with exceptional breadth and clarity. As suggested in the opening chapter, contemporary treatment of voice disorders draws on interdisciplinary expertise, and the book is true to that perspective. The team approach to voice treatment is realized through the contributions of laryngologists, speech-language pathologists, singing voice specialists, nurses, physiotherapists, acting voice trainers, and others.

The reader will find discussion of various treatment procedures, including surgical, pharmacological, and behavioral. Treatment of Voice Disorders, Second Edition presents essential information that allows for the effective interaction of various specialties. For example, behavioral specialists can draw on the information that is given on surgery, trauma and injury, and medications. This book is at once a template for team-based treatment and a deep informational resource for treatment alternatives. Its scope and depth make it a book that the voice specialist will want to keep close at hand.

Treatment of Voice Disorders, Second Edition is ideal for speech-language pathology students and clinicians and is suitable for classroom use as well as for reference. It is an essential volume for anyone concerned with voice disorders.
