About me

Nazaneen Grant, MD, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained laryngeal (voice box) specialist. Her expertise includes hoarseness evaluation and voice disorders, vocal fold paralysis and paresis, subglottic stenosis, swallowing disorders, and growths in the voice box including polyps, cysts, phonotraumatic lesions, papillomas, and early cancers.

Dr. Grant has special training in Botox for spasmodic dysphonia, laser surgery in the voice box, and awake procedures that include vocal fold paralysis rehabilitation and managing professional voice.

Her research interests include laryngeal surgical stimulation, laryngeal papillomatosis, Parkinson's-related voice and swallowing issues, and laser effects on the larynx.
