Meet Lesley Childs, M.D.: Assistant Professor of Laryngology
As a recently appointed Assistant Professor of Laryngology in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, it is thrilling for me to combine my musical interests with my passion for medicine at the Clinical Center for Voice Care.

Our goal at the Clinical Center for Voice Care is to work closely with singers and professional voice users to ensure the maintenance of vocal health and to carefully diagnose and treat possible laryngeal pathology. But others may be in need of our services, too—for example, those individuals who struggle with hoarseness. We also care for people with swallowing and airway disorders, as well as those with neurologic conditions affecting voice production, such as tremor or spasmodic dysphonia.
