LIVE WEBINAR: Laryngeal Variations Identified on FEES: What's an SLP to Do?
Purpose: This 2-hour webinar provides an opportunity to familiarize the SLP with normal nasolaryngoscopic anatomy and function. Participants will be able to identify “normal” anatomic variations seen on laryngoscopic examination. Pathologic lesions requiring referral to an otolaryngologist will be covered.
About the Instructor: Dr. Ashli O’Rourke, M.D. began her professional career as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). After more than seven years of clinical speech therapy practice at Emory University Hospital, she attended medical school at the Medical College of Georgia. She completed her residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia and her fellowship in Laryngology, Voice, and Swallowing Disorders at the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. O’Rourke joined the Medical University of South Carolina Evelyn Trammell Institute for Voice & Swallowing in September, 2012.
Dr. O’Rourke treats adult patients with problems located in the larynx and/or the esophagus. She is particularly interested in the diagnosis and treatment of swallowing disorders as well as LPR. Her research interests include the evaluation of pharyngeal dysphagia with high resolution manometry.
