Clinic-based procedures and laryngology are a perfect match, and the average laryngologist’s practice involves a significant amount of in-clinic work. In fact, the field of laryngology developed historically as an out-patient (clinic-based) discipline well over 100 years ago. This initial period where laryngology was practiced almost entirely outside of the operating room, over time transitioned to largely operating theatre-based procedures. This was largely due to better equipment available and improving general anaesthesia techniques. Most recently, with the rising costs of medical care and the advent of newer technology, in-clinic laryngology procedures have again become commonplace.
