Woman holding her inflamed throat.If you have recently been diagnosed with a benign lesion on your vocal cords, you may have tried nonsurgical treatments to alleviate inflammation and hoarseness. However, if these treatments fail to work, it may be time to consider surgical methods to remove scar tissue, cysts, or benign growths. Dr. Payam Daneshrad and his team at Daneshrad Clinic of Torrance and Santa Monica, CA, provide special techniques and methods to address vocal fold lesions, including the micro flat excision treatment.

What Is a Micro Flap Excision?

When lesions are present on the vocal fold, the micro flap excision technique is a reliable method for removing them. During this procedure, Dr. Payam Daneshrad utilizes precise methods to cut away the lesion from the vocal fold without damaging the surrounding tissue.

What Are the Benefits of the Micro Flap Excision Method?

This method:

  • Reduces recovery time and ensures that healthy tissue remains intact
  • Requires no sutures are needed as the micro flap made is restored to the original position
  • Allows for minimized scarring as the incisions heal on their own

What Should I Plan For After My Procedure?

Our team will recommend the following:

  • Strict voice rest for up to two weeks
  • Postponing voice engagements for three months post-op
  • Corticosteroids and antibiotics to prevent infection
