Abstract

This article presents the evolution of current office-based surgery of the larynx, focusing on the development of the tools and techniques for these ambulatory procedures, including laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, esophagoscopy, and current office-based interventions. Additionally, a historical timeline is presented for the development of office-based laryngology within the context under which laryngology, as a subspecialty, has evolved over the past 200 years, with questions posed to the reader regarding what further developments may arise and how those will affect the practice.
