Recovery & Support for Stridor in Adults

Most people who have had surgery for stridor, or noisy breathing caused by a partially blocked or narrowed airway, require follow-up visits with their NYU Langone doctor to ensure that the airway remains open. If stridor returns at any time, a doctor should evaluate you immediately.

Speech, Swallowing, and Voice Rehabilitation

People who have surgical treatment for stridor or underlying conditions may experience difficulty with voice, speech, and swallowing. Speech pathologists at NYU Langone’s Voice Center provide an accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan to improve your communication and swallowing skills.

Speech pathologists can help improve voice problems after treatment, recondition the voice after vocal cord surgery, and correct swallowing problems after surgery involving the larynx.
