Vocal cord polyps surgery is a surgical procedure to remove benign growths, called polyps, that develop on the vocal cords. Vocal cord polyps are noncancerous, fluid-filled lesions that can cause hoarseness, difficulty speaking or singing, and vocal fatigue.

The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and can be done using several different techniques, depending on the size and location of the polyps. The most common technique is micro laryngeal surgery, in which a specialized microscope and delicate instruments are used to remove the polyps through the mouth.

After the surgery, the patient may experience sore throat, hoarseness, and difficulty swallowing for several days to weeks, and may need to rest their voice and avoid strenuous activities to promote healing. Speech therapy may also be recommended to help restore the voice and prevent future polyps.

Vocal cord polyps surgery is a safe and effective treatment for people with persistent or severe vocal cord polyps that do not respond to non-surgical treatments, such as voice therapy or medication. It can help improve voice quality, reduce hoarseness and fatigue, and prevent complications such as vocal cord scarring or vocal cord paralysis.
