Voice Feminization Surgery: Vocal Fold Shortening and Advancement of Anterior Commissure
The new method of Voice Feminization Surgery, called “Vocal Fold Shortening and Advancement of Anterior Commissure,” is the world’s first treatment that does not incise the neck skin and get the same outcome of modifying the vocal cord to a female shape using an endoscope. The average vocal frequency increase is about 72.66Hz and the surgery successful rate is 89% in average. This treatment which was developed by YVC was presented at the Voice Foundation Association in 2007 in U.S.
Transcutaneous EMG-guided Injection Laryngoplasty
It is a new treatment method using electromyogram to cure vocal cord which does not close completely (vocal fold paralysis). This method does not need to incise the skin or anesthetize the surgical area. The electromyogram was tested approximately 1000 times on animals, and was first performed to patients in 1997. YVC recently records more than 1100 cases of this procedure and the successful rate of 92 percents. This Clinical studies were presented at the 2nd East Asian Phonosurgery Conference in 1999 and at the Voice Foundation’s 32nd Annual Symposium in Philadelphia, US in 2003.
Laryngoscopic Pulsed Dye Laser(PDL) Surgery
YVC implemented the PhotoGenica SV Pulsed Dye Laser(PDL) from Cynosure Inc. U.S. This implementation was used first domestically, but later it was used in Asia, too. The equipment enables the laryngeal surgery to be performed without general anesthesia, but through partial anesthesia by using the digital laryngoscope. It selects and solidifies only blood vessels of vocal band. It does not damage the healthy tissue but destroys only abnormal tissue (Successful rate is 95% with 1080 cases).
Established in 2003, Yeson Voice Center (YVC) is South Korea’s first and largest institution providing specialized care and surgery for voice. YVC provides systematic and professional voice care for people who use their voices for professional purposes (vocalists, singers, news anchors, teachers, etc.) and voice disorder patients. YVC offers the utmost quality in equipments and treatment techniques to help patients to regain clear voice. YVC also adopted a program for voice art and voice care from the Jefferson Arts-Medicine Center of Thomas Jefferson University.
