About Us

The Sean Parker Institute for the Voice, part of the Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, provides the highest quality of care for patients with voice disorders, whether they are performers, public speakers or other intensive voice users, or people with more routine vocal demands.

Voice is essential in our personal and professional lives, but most people take it for granted. Anyone with a voice problem knows how limiting it can be; often, it is no exaggeration to call it disabling.  Although voice disorders affect more than 20 million people in the United States, finding specialized care can be a challenge.

The Sean Parker Institute offers expert diagnosis and sophisticated, effective treatment appropriate for each patient’s vocal requirements. The institute is also committed to advancing the science of clinical care through transformative research focused on root problems in the treatment of laryngeal disease.
