Abstract : Phonosurgery has to do with a surgical procedure, performed with an aim to enhance the voice. Common anomalies of the vocal fold includes a wide variety of pathologies such as nodules, polyps, cysts, and cancer. The method most commonly used of phonosurgery is done using a laser beam. The laser beam source is located approximately fourty centimeters away from the vocal cords. With this long distance, a small accuracy error would strongly impact the quality of the intervention. Recent advances in the area of micromechanisms used in medicine have increased the potential for an early detection and a better treatment against vocal folds diseases Using microdevices, micromechanisms can be designed to guide the laser beam nearest to the vocal fold, for an accurate treatment and for minimizing the risk of detriment of the delicate vocal fold structures.
