In October 2020, Latvia's leading otolaryngologists and microsurgeons met for a joint seminar to discuss the availability of voice prostheses in Latvia and the opportunity to offer patients the possibility to return speech skills after laryngectomy (laryngeal resection) with voice prostheses.
Let us remind you that Latvia is still the only country in Baltic states where such manipulations are not performed and voice prostheses are not paid for by the state.
As a result of the seminar, we got confirmation that it is time to make changes in the industry, register implantation of voice prostheses as a new medical technology and promote voice prostheses as a state-paid product, similar to hearing aids.
You can find more information about voice prostheses on our website here.
If you have any questions about the progress of this process or the availability of prostheses, please contact us!
