Voice Center for Medicine and the Arts

The central mission of the Voice Center is to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art evaluation and management of voice disorders. We are unique in our approach to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of voice disorders in that the techniques are based upon over two decades of world-class voice research done right here at UCLA. The Voice Center was established by Dr. Gerald S. Berke, who is an international authority on the physiology of the larynx. The Laryngeal Physiology Laboratory, Laryngeal Dynamics Laboratory, and the Voice Perception Laboratory are affiliated with the Voice Center and have played central roles in advancing scientific knowledge of how the larynx works and how voice is perceived, and in the development of novel treatments for voice disorders, such as surgery for spasmodic dysphonia, vocal cord paralysis, and airway stenosis.

The Voice Center is a clinical resource for patients with any type of voice problem, ranging from common benign disorders such as vocal nodules, polyps, and papillomas, to more complex disorders such as spasmodic dysphonia, airway stenosis, and laryngeal cancer. The center is at the forefront of implementing the latest developments in clinical and basic voice research and technology, including the use of in-office laser therapy, digital video endoscopes and minimally invasive approaches to a range of complex disorders of the larynx and trachea, from vocal cord paralysis to cancer of the larynx.
