A laryngectomy, which is the removal of the larynx, is a life changing procedure that impacts basic functions we often take for granted, such as breathing, the ability to communicate and swallow.

After the larynx is removed there is no pathway for air between the throat and lungs, which is why a permanent hole called a tracheostoma is made in the patient's neck. Luckily, speech therapists like Ann-Louise from the RBWH outpatients department are here to support our patients through the process.

"Breathing now happens naturally through the stoma, but because the air no longer passes through the nose, a patient's sense of smell and taste is often affected. We also hold smell rehab groups to help patients learn how to smell in an alternative way," Ann-Louise said.

"The most common rehabilitation option is a voice prosthesis which offers the most natural sounding voice option, but does require regular cleaning and changing. We see most of these patients for the rest of their lives and get to know them really well." 🥰
