What is Micro laryngeal surgery?

Microlaryngoscopy, otherwise called microscopic laryngeal surgery, is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove abnormal growths like benign cysts or granulomas in the larynx.

Micro laryngeal is also used to remove and evaluate various lesions of the vocal folds, which includes cancer, papilloma, polyps, and Reinke's edema.

It uses the two most essential tools:

  • The operative microscope
  • Microlaryngeal dissection instruments

This entire surgery is done through a laryngoscope inserted via the mouth without the need to make skin incisions. It is generally performed to diagnose or treat laryngeal cancer or to correct voice disorder.

The Procedure of Microlaryngeal Surgery:

Micro laryngeal surgery is commonly performed under general anesthesia, which is closely monitored by our anaesthesiologist working in collaboration with our surgeon. A laryngoscope allows the doctor to visualize the area with great precision. The laryngoscope is inserted into the throat through your nose, and the lesion is located. The surgeon removes the abnormal lesion/growth using tiny surgical tools that have been threaded through the laryngoscope to the affected site. As this technique permits the surgeon to operate with great accuracy, only the damaged tissue is excised. The surrounding area remains unharmed.

What can you expect after Micro laryngeal surgery?

It remains an ambulatory procedure, despite the use of general anesthesia. This allows the patient to go back home on the same day as the surgery, after being monitored for several hours.

Micro laryngeal surgery typically takes one hour to complete. After surgery, there will be some discomfort and pain; pain is not severe and rarely requires pain medications.

The doctor typically prescribes postoperative voice therapy to assist in improving and maintaining voice quality.


This type of surgery is extremely safe but has some risk factors, like any other surgery, including numbness of the tongue due to pressure. Initial weeks following the surgery, complete voice rest is required.
