Phonosurgery as a Concept

In 1930, Gluck [1] coined the term “phonetic surgery.” At the end of the 1950s and the beginning of the 1960s, surgery centered exclusively on voice became an accepted surgical modality [1]. The concept of phonosurgery was introduced by Albrecht, whose use of a gynecologic colposcope for microlaryngoscopy was met with skepticism by the otolaryngological community [2]. In 1963, Von Leden [3] defined the term “phonosurgery,” which they would later popularize. Von Leden recalls this event and his personal interactions with Lewy, Kleinsasser, Jako, Lynch, and others who catalyzed the evolution of laryngoscopes and optics.
