Post Laryngectomy

General

Laryngeal cancer is treated primarily by curative radiation therapy. 

In cases where radiation therapy is not sufficient, or for advanced cancer, the larynx must be removed. 

A laryngectomy causes significant lifestyle changes for the patient by losing normal speech function and breathing through a tracheotomy.

Indication

  • Laryngectomy patients after laryngeal cancer.

Goal

  • Prevent problems related to lifestyle changes after laryngectomy.
