Statement regarding treatment of Sam Smith by Steven Zeitels, MD.
The first long-term study of a pioneering endoscopic laser treatment for early vocal-cord cancer, developed at the MGH and previously shown to provide optimal voice outcomes, finds that it is as successful as traditional approaches in curing patients&rsquo; tumors while avoiding the damage to vocal quality caused by radiotherapy or by conventional laser or cold-instrument surgery.

MGH surgeons have developed a new technique for reconstructing the larynx after surgery for advanced cancer. The approach uses cryopreserved aortas from deceased donors to replace removed larynx tissue and allows some patients to avoid a permanent tracheotomy and maintain voice and swallowing function.
