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’ 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.
