Botox your stuttering away

I never stop being surprised about the extent to which people are searching for a cure or reduction of their stuttering: walking on all four, not speaking for 3 days, remove a part of the tongue, and so on. Now I have come across articles on botox and stuttering: see here at Judy's page. As always the studies show some promising results, and as always they are deeply flawed.

It's a treatment also commonly applied in spasmodic dysphonia, without great results.

This is a great blog. Thank you for putting this forum together. I have been reading blogs like this for awhile and for the most part people have had positive experiences with their elective procedures. That is great to see. I would be interested to know what your cirteris would be - or has been - in a search for a cosmetic surgeon. That is undoubtedly the most difficult part of the process - finding a good surgeon for your specific situation. My name is Mia I am the VP of Operations at The Patients Advantage. I am not interested in selling what we do on these blogs. What we do is at no cost to patients. I am interested in feedback from people who have already gone through the search process and or have taken the process all the way and had an elective procedure done. We have been in business since 2004 and the feedback we have received has always kept us in the forefront of technology and develop the tools that keep patients better informed on who the best surgeons are and the research tools about the procedures of interest. Please reply to this post on what is important to you…or email me directly from here or through our site; Happy Holidays!
