If you have a voice or swallowing problem that requires surgery,  it’s important to find a surgeon who has not only the right experience and expertise, but also an understanding of your unique personal needs and professional challenges.

Dr. Benjamin Rafii received his specialized training in laryngeal surgery (voice and vocal cord surgery and swallowing surgery)  at some of the world’s leading laryngology and voice surgery programs at Stanford, NYU and UCLA, where he worked directly with internationally-renowned leaders and pioneers in surgery of the voice, airway, and throat. Dr. Rafii combines this strong foundation in throat surgery with a cautious and compassionate approach to providing individualized surgical care to his patients who need an operation, and countless patients have trusted their care to him.
