The Art of Caring for the Professional Singer.
Otolaryngologic Clinics of North America
Training in care of the voice for the general otolaryngologist has improved with the presence of more fellowship-trained laryngologists within academic training programs. However, preparation for caring for the professional singer goes beyond the basic understanding of voice evaluation, laryngeal imaging, and microlaryngeal surgery. The otolaryngologist must have a deeper understanding of the demands, vocabulary, psyche, and economics of the professional singer to provide optimal care. The ramification of recommendations made or procedures undertaken by the otolaryngologist can have serious consequences in a singer's career. This article introduces the otolaryngologist to the specifics of caring for professional singers.
