Mumbai- 40-year-old vendor from Bhayander by profession falooda seller Nishikanat Bhagwat (name changed) was suffering from a voice problem from the past 15-20 years. He has taken opinion & treatments from many doctors but couldn't get complete relief. Recently a patient was having voice breaks during speaking. It made the voice sound strained, occasionally the voice would be so strained that it was very difficult to understand his speech. After suggestion from a local doctor he visited the SWAR Voice and Swallowing clinic at Apex Superspeciality Hospital in Borivali where Dr. Binhi Desai ENT and Voice Surgeon – Otorhinolaryngologist has started his treatment. Giving more information about this, Dr. Binhi Desai ENT and Voice Surgeon-
She further added, Under Flexible laryngoscopy guidance & team assisted by ENT Specialist Dr. Chintan Nishar we conducted Botox treatment where we gave Botox into the affected voice box muscles. The procedure is painless and the patient has a magical improvement in his voice. His voice became spasm free after 2 weeks. He is able to talk and speak comfortably and confidently with everyone. The effect of botox lasts 4-6 months. Botox Injection is mainly botulinum toxin, which is a powerful neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It causes temporary paralysis into the injected muscle and so they no longer spasm. This allows the voice to sound normally. This is the first time Botox has been injected into the voice box for spasmodic dysphonia in the western suburb of Mumbai. The patient is under regular follow up and has been counselled to come again once the voice starts getting strained for a second botox injection.
