This volume brings the art and science of voice-care into a reference format for all those involved with professional care. To this end, otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists, teachers and performers of music and psychologists have written this text to: introduce the scope of professional-voice care; discuss the need for an understanding of the anatomy, physiology and art of voice-use; identify the resources available to deliver this care; and introduce the future of vocal arts medicine. The book begins with a section describing the anatomy and physiology of voice production. This is followed by specific evaluation strategies for professional-voice disorders. The last section is concerned with categorizing the disorders, and discussing various prevention and treatment strategies—including surgery.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.
