A laser for the voice
At the Wiener Privatklinik (WPK), opera singers, actors, professional speakers and TV journalists rely on the expertise of Associate Professor Dr. Berit Schneider-Stickler and her interdisciplinary team. As a specialist in ear, nose and throat medicine and phoniatrics, specializing in voice and speech therapy, she has built up an international reputation.
A key component of her work is laryngeal surgery, for which she uses state-of-the-art technologies such as the TruBlue laser. This innovative laser system with a special wavelength of 445 nanometers enables precise interventions, particularly in the removal of growths in the larynx and the obliteration of vascular dilatations such as telangiectasias and telangiectatic vocal fold polyps.
The versatility of the TruBlue Laser
Prof. Schneider-Stickler emphasizes the importance of the TruBlue laser for the treatment of papillomas in the larynx, virus-induced tumors that can become malignant in rare cases. Thanks to the tissue-sparing properties of the laser system, these tumors can be removed effectively and gently, ensuring consistent treatment.
The versatility of the TruBlue laser extends beyond the larynx and is used for leukoplakic changes in the mouth and throat area as well as in other areas of ENT medicine. For example, it is used in ear surgery, particularly in stapesplasty, to replace the stapes with a prosthesis.
The TruBlue laser is also used in the treatment of oncological diseases in the ear, nose and throat area. Its wide range of applications and its precise, tissue-preserving properties make it an indispensable tool in modern ENT surgery.
Thanks to the expertise of Prof. Schneider-Stickler and her team and the use of innovative technologies such as the TruBlue laser, Wiener Privatklinik offers its patients first-class care at the highest level. Patients can rest assured that their voice and speech-related problems will be treated with the utmost precision and care to improve their health and quality of life.
In a world where the voice plays a central role in many professions, the work of Prof. Schneider-Stickler and her team is invaluable. Her expertise and dedication to patient care make her a leading authority in the field of otolaryngology and phoniatrics, and the Wiener Privatklinik a go-to destination for patients from around the world seeking world-class medical care.
