At Yeson Voice Center, the World's first EMG (Electromyogram)
guided procedure was developed and practiced without the need of
anesthesia and skin incision but now thanks to the development of
electronic laryngoscope it's possible to perform the surgery without
the use of EMG.
Electromyogram was tested approximately 1000 times on animals,
then operated officially in 1997.
Clinical studies were presented to the National Learned Society
(4th Korean Otolaryngology General Learned Society Presentation 1998),
as well as to the International one (2nd East Asian Orthopedic
Learned Society), and it was also presented at the 32nd American
Voice Learned Society in Philadelphia on June 8th 2003
(The Voice Foundation's 32nd Annual Symposium).
