Laryngectomy is the surgical removal of the larynx. The larynx is your voice box, the organ in your throat. Your voice box houses your vocal cords. That’s what allows you to produce sound. The larynx also lets air travel from your lungs to your mouth.
Surgery is commonly used to treat patients with laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers. Depending on the stage and location of the cancer, different operations may be used to remove the cancer and some nearby parts of the larynx or hypopharynx.
