The Laryngology Fellowship is a one-year program with the UAB Voice Center under the UAB Department of Otolaryngology. The fellowship program was launched by Dr. Blake Simpson in 2020 after he ran a successful fellowship program at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio from 2008-2019.
The program provides the Fellow with comprehensive exposure to open laryngeal framework surgery including medialization laryngoplasty, and arytenoid adduction and microlaryngeal surgery. There is a strong emphasis on office-based procedures, including vocal fold injection augmentation, per-oral and EMG-guided Botox, and pulsed-KTP laser treatment of laryngeal lesions. A strong experience in endoscopic and open airway surgery is also provided. Cricopharyngeal surgery, Zenker's, dilation, CP myotomy is also part of the educational experience. The referral base at UAB includes the entire state of Alabama, eastern Georgia, Mississippi, and the Florida panhandle – a catchment area population of roughly 15 million.
