Let the speech therapist treat the laryngectomy

As a speech therapy practice in Düsseldorf, we offer comprehensive treatment for speech, language and swallowing disorders, including treatment of laryngectomy or larynx removal in adults.

Effective treatment by speech therapists

Laryngectomy may be necessary because of cancer or other diseases of the larynx, which can cause permanent changes in breathing, speech, and swallowing. Impaired language and communication skills can lead to isolation and depression, which can significantly affect the patient’s quality of life.

In our practice, we offer therapies that are specially tailored to the needs of laryngectomy patients in order to improve speech, language and swallowing skills and improve their quality of life. We work closely with doctors, nurses and other therapists to ensure holistic treatment.

Our experienced speech therapists use a variety of techniques and exercises to train patients in articulation, breathing, resonance, voice formation and speech intelligibility. We also help patients adapt to alternative methods of communication such as the use of electronic communication devices.

Laryngectomy treatment requires patience and ongoing commitment to achieve optimal results. We work closely with our patients to ensure they learn and apply the skills necessary to improve their communication skills and boost their confidence.

If you or a loved one have had a laryngectomy and need support to improve speaking, speaking and swallowing skills, contact us today. Our experienced team of speech therapists are at your disposal to help you improve your skills and quality of life.

Characteristics of laryngectomy / larynx removal 

A laryngectomy, in which the larynx is removed, has serious effects on breathing and speech. In general, the characteristics that appear in a laryngectomy are as follows:

  • Loss of Voice: Removal of the larynx means loss of the natural voice produced by the vibrations of the vocal cords.

  • Heavy breathing: Without the larynx, the body has to find alternative ways to breathe, which can result in a change in normal breathing.

  • Language Changes: Loss of the larynx can result in a change in the way a person speaks. The voice may sound different or be weaker, and it may be difficult to pronounce words and phrases clearly.

  • Difficulty swallowing: A laryngectomy can also cause difficulty swallowing because the larynx plays an important role in swallowing.

It is important to note that every case is different and that symptoms can vary from person to person. A comprehensive evaluation by a speech therapist is essential to determine individual needs and treatment plan.

duration of treatment

The length of treatment for laryngectomy larynx removal may vary depending on individual factors and the severity of symptoms.

Therapy usually begins immediately after surgery and can last for several months or even years, depending on the patient’s recovery and progress. As a rule, the treatment units take place at regular intervals and can also be carried out in group sessions.

An experienced speech therapist will tailor the individual therapy plan to the needs and progress of the patient in order to achieve the best possible result. It is important that the patient remains patient and committed to therapy to achieve the best possible results.
