PLEASE! IT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL! THANK YOU!!

Answer:

This is a very difficult procedure but we do have doctors who may be able to help. You need to be evaluated, and this would be best performed at a university center by an ENT physician specializing in voice and airway problems.  Feel free to email me if you have questions.
