Voice concerns

Dr Elizabeth Hodge is one of only a handful of Australian ENT surgeons who has completed a sub-specialty fellowship in Laryngology or Voice Disorders and Surgery. She completed the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons “North Thames Laryngology Fellowship” in London. Her time in the United Kingdom saw her working with Britain’s top laryngologists, voice specialists and speech therapists. These specialist clinicians treated the UK’s biggest stars, whether they were performing on the West End or at the O2 arena.

She has also completed a sub-specialty fellowship in Head and Neck Cancer at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, so has expertise in treating cancers of the voice box, as well as non-cancerous conditions.

Her practice on Wickham Terrace is one of only a few sites in Queensland that has high-definition stroboscopy, along with high-definition laryngeal video analysis equipment, available on site. This enables her to get the best possible view of the voice box. Dr Hodge is able to provide recordings of the laryngeal examination allowing patients to see their voice box first-hand, and thus make fully informed decisions about their care. Dr Hodge’s extra training in voice surgery, along with head and neck cancer surgery, means that she is able to discuss all the various options available with you and operate as required.
