Newport Beach, CA (Vocus) June 17, 2009 -- Hoag Hospital announces the grand opening of Hoag Voice and Swallowing Center, the most comprehensive program in Orange County. Hoag Voice and Swallowing Center provides the complete spectrum of multidisciplinary care located within the new Hoag Health Center-Newport Beach.
The center offers procedures to improve voice and swallowing function, providing patients with less invasive operating options, and speech. State-of-the-art diagnostics and office-based treatment options include laser surgery using a pulsed KTP laser, a first in Southern California, and unsedated laryngeal procedures--a significant convenience over the conventional procedure.
Specialized care is available for people with hoarseness resulting from various voice and swallowing disorders as well as for professional voice users such as singers, actors, clergy, lawyers, and teachers.
"Many individuals being treated for other disorders may also find themselves with complications related to voice and/or swallowing," states Steven Feinberg, M.D., director of Hoag Voice and Swallowing Center, whose patients include those suffering from systemic neurologic disorders such as stroke and Parkinson's disease. "These patients benefit from expert diagnosis and treatments including medical and surgical therapies as well as voice therapy."
Dr. Feinberg is the only fellowship-trained laryngologist in Orange County and comes to Hoag from Massachusetts General Hospital where he trained with leaders in the field and held an academic appointment in the Harvard Medical School. He completed a 5-year residency in Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery at the University of California-Irvine.
Hoag Voice and Swallowing Center is open 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday and located at 500 Superior Ave #305 in Newport Beach, CA 92663. For more information, call (949) 764-1850 or visit www.hoaghospital.org/voice.
