Anesthesia with Cordectomy:

Cordectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.

Potential Complications from Cordectomy:

Possible risks following cordectomy include bleeding, infection, damage to the vocal cords and a negative reaction to the anesthesia. It is also possible to experience loss of normal speech and be temporarily unable to swallow.

Recovery from Cordectomy:
