Dr. Robert Lorenz explains the REACHER procedure

There are several ways that people can lose the use of their voice box. This can result from injury to the larynx or removal of the larynx due to cancer or laryngeal stenosis.

Cleveland Clinic's Head and Neck Institute specializes in several laryngeal and tracheal reconstructions, including laryngeal airway obstruction, esophageal reflux, tracheal aspiration, laryngoscopy and voice preservation and rehabilitation and removal of upper and lower respiratory foreign bodies. Cleveland Clinic expertise in this area led to the world’s first total laryngeal transplant in 1998.
