Researcher | Research Overview
Roger Nuss' research interests focus upon pediatric laryngology and voice disorders. Currently, he is developing grading scales to describe vocal fold nodules in children, and studying the long-term outcomes of children with vocal fold nodules. Additional research interests include management of vocal fold immobility and airway scarring.
