I've been coming here for treatment for some time now and at first, I wasn't sure but as time passed I realized the staff was very in tune with the patients and very friendly. I have a fear of needles, but they are brilliant. Hardly feel anything. They offer various treatments so you'd have to check what suits your needs but I can recommend it and will continue here for the foreseeable future

Chris Shorter, 22 April 2020
An extraordinary establishment. From Registration through to discharge, I was blessed with unimpeachable service, kindness, and expertise. A VERY difficult and dangerous infectious complaint took 8 days with 5 specialists in attendance. Housed in a single bed, comfortable, suite, nurses checked me every 30 minutes, 24/7. Absolutely impressive. I understood at the time it was in the world's Top Ten hospitals, and understandably, but I don't see it in the top 100 on this website. I experienced years before, Bangkok Hospital, which was excellent, but it didn't match Bumrungrad.

What you need to know about Voice Restoration Surgery in Thailand

Total Laryngectomy

Voice restoration surgery is a surgical procedure to restore the voice and speech function after you have lost your voice box (larynx). The procedure is mainly performed after total laryngectomy or laryngopharyngectomy. The most preferred method of voice restoration is a tracheoesophageal puncture, which is a surgically made hole between your trachea (windpipe) and your esophagus (the muscular tube that connects the throat with the stomach).

What does the Procedure Involve?

There are two types of tracheoesophageal puncture: primary and secondary, both are performed under general anesthetic.  In general, your surgeon makes a fistula between the trachea and the esophagus, which punctures the short segment of tissue that normally separates the two structures. Then, a voice prosthesis is inserted into the puncture. The prosthesis lets air into the esophagus for esophageal speech but keeps food out of the windpipe. 

How Long Should I Stay in Thailand?

You may be required to stay in the hospital after the surgery. You will need to attend follow-up checkups since your surgeon needs to monitor if the voice prosthesis is functioning properly. You may need to stay in Thailand for about 10 to 14 days.

What's the Recovery Time?

Recovery after voice restoration surgery may take several weeks. Most patients are able to return to most of their activities within 3 to 4 weeks, but it varies from one person to another. Make sure to talk to your doctor about the detail of your recovery timeline, including when you can go back to work and perform strenuous activities.

What About Aftercare?

Your surgeon will give you post-operative instructions on wound care, diet, exercise, and restrictions. Your medical care team will teach you how to manage proper prosthesis maintenance and monitor for device problems or complications. Voice rehabilitation and regular follow-up appointments may also be required after surgery, but you can choose to have this in your home country.

What's the Success Rate?

Voice restoration surgery is a generally safe procedure with a high success rate. Complications of the procedure are usually linked to poor tissue conditions at the puncture site. There are also other side effects and risks of the procedure, including bleeding, infection, blood clots, damage to nearby organs and nerves, allergic reactions to anesthesia, as well as an unsuccessful outcome.

Are there Alternatives to Voice Restoration Surgery?

If you are not an ideal candidate for voice restoration surgery, your alternatives include esophageal speech and electrolarynx. Esophageal speech is a skill that you can learn from speech training, it involves oscillation of the esophagus to produce speech. Electrolarynx (or throat back) is a device that can produce clearer speech pressed against the skin under the mandible.

What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

Before voice restoration surgery, your speech function may be impaired due to previous surgery, such as laryngectomy, which can also have a psychological and emotional impact. After the surgery, you may be able to get your voice back and verbal communication will not be a significant challenge anymore. This will have a positive effect on your physical and emotional health.
