Physicians Speak about TLM for Throat Cancer
Physician Testimonials
 “In treating laryngeal cancer I tailor the procedure to the patient and to the disease.
Early staged disease that involves the vocal folds, I feel is best treated with the use of a CO2 laser using a laryngoscope, microscope and Digital AcuBlade.
I feel this offers excellent outcome and still allows for more aggressive treatment later if required.”


Mark Courey, M.D., Professor, University of California, San Francisco Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery Director, Division of Laryngology



 “TLM is superior to radiotherapy which is often an over-treatment. Oncological results are often better with laser surgery than with radiation. There’s less local recurrence, and less salvage laryngectomies. Morbidity and complication rates are lower with similar results.”

Wolfgang Steiner, M.D., Professor Emeritus, Department of Otolaryngology, University of Gottingen Medical Center, Germany
