Spasmodic dysphonia is a neurologic condition where patients suffer involuntary voice spasms resulting in an intermittent strangled quality voice with voice breaks or cut-offs (listen to examples here). Spasmodic dysphonia is most often treated with Botox injections to the voicebox. Dr. Chang performs such injections every Friday afternoon.
