Comprehensive Medical, Surgical, and Therapeutic Care for Voice, Swallowing and Breathing Disorders.
The Voice Clinic of Indiana in Indianapolis/Carmel was established in 2013 by Dr. Stacey Halum, MD after 8 years of dedicated patient care and research at Indiana University. Drs. Halum and Parker are the only physicians in the state of Indiana with fellowship training in the management of throat and neck disorders, also known as the field of laryngology, while Doctor Parker is one of the few sleep surgeons in Indiana. Anatomically speaking, laryngology problems arise from the throat (including the larynx (or voice box or vocal cords), the pharynx, the esophagus (or swallowing tube), and the trachea (or upper breathing passageway)) and neck (including lymph nodes and other neck masses that can develop, the thyroid gland, and the parathyroid glands). Because of this focus, the doctors at The Voice Clinic are experts in medical and surgical management of the throat and neck, which includes voice, swallowing, and breathing problems; laryngeal dysplasia and cancer; surgery for snoring and sleep apnea; and surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid gland disease. In order to provide optimal care that meets patient needs, The Voice Clinic maximally integrates physicians, speech pathologists (communication and swallowing therapists), and other vital healthcare providers into patient evaluation, treatment, and follow-up. The Voice Clinic of Indiana is the only center in the state dedicated to the care of voice, swallowing, and breathing disorders, including laryngeal dysplasia and cancer treatment and surgical management of sleep apnea, snoring, and thyroid and parathyroid disease.
