About, The Voice Problem Site

This content was originally brought to you by The Voice Problem Website, a non-profit educational website funded through the Watergate Voice Foundation. The Voice Problem Website’s entire purpose is to support patients with voice disorders as they seek healing for the more complex, more intractable voice problems. The Voice Problem Website is currently unavailable while undergoing a major update.

Volunteer Editorial Board

The Voice Problem Website is a dedicated work in progress involving a consortium of six recognized voice surgeons who structure, write, and edit the medical information in these pages. Committed to voice disorders and recognized around the world as voice specialists, this small grouping of physicians completed some thousand hours of effort on their own time. The whole of their work has been without compensation.

The Voice Problem Website also involved a nationwide pool of voice specialist Contributors and Reviewers who gave dedicated work to the process.
