Voice restoration following head and neck surgery

The American Cancer Society estimated 59,000 cases of head and neck cancer in the United States in 2015 (American Cancer Society, 2015). Individuals with head and neck cancer acquire communication needs as a result of various cancer treatments, including surgical resection, radiation, and chemotherapy. Surgical treatments may involve resection of head/neck structures and tissue that may result in partial or complete removal of the larynx, vocal cords, and articulatory structures, in turn resulting in loss of voice and/or speech.
