Kansas Voice Center

Throat and Voice Specialists located in Lawrence, KS

Since 1998, the Kansas Voice Center has been dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of clinical voice disorders. The voice center serves as a resource for anyone with a voice disorder as well as those who use their voice professionally; including: singers, teachers, salespeople, coaches, attorneys, secretaries, public speakers, clergy, and other occupations that require daily voice use.

Dr. Lee A. Reussner started the voice center in 1998 with the goal of providing exceptional patient oriented vocal care; today he is partnered by Jennifer M. Cannady, a certified Speech Pathologist, who shares this practice philosophy. We strive to provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of the vocal tract. The Kansas Voice Center is a division of Lawrence Otolaryngology Associates, Ear, Nose and Throat practice, and is devoted to the evaluation and treatment of clinical voice disorders and understanding of the processes of voice production. Our experience has taught us to treat each patient as an individual and a partner in his or her medical care.

Diagnostic services include specialized personnel, medical evaluation, perceptual voice evaluation, laryngeal videostroboscopy, computerized voice analysis, laryngeal pH testing, laryngeal EMG, and pulmonary function testing.

We enjoy seeing and treating individuals with a wide variety of voice concerns ranging from decreased singing range to laryngeal cancer. Common issues include: chronic hoarseness, vocal tremor, vocal cord paralysis, spasmodic dysphonia, vocal cord polyps/nodules, and tracheal stenosis (a narrow windpipe).
