State-of-the-Art Voice Diagnostics and Voice Therapy
As an internationally renowned authority in voice medicine, Dr. Wohlt applies the most current international standards to implement his concern for ultra-accurate voice diagnostics.
These include digital techniques for video recording of the vocal folds (videostroboscopy) as well as computer-driven procedures for acoustic analysis of the voice.
Despite this emphasis on modern technology, diagnosis is always based on a comprehensive medical consultation and an acoustic assessment of the patient's voice.
When singing issues are involved, an examination of the singing voice is required as well.

International Center of Excellence in Vienna
The International Center of Excellence in Vienna is located in a stately baroque style house built at the end of the 17th Century in the Annagasse, one of the few remaining baroque side streets in the 1st District.
The musical centerpiece of the center is a magnificent antique Steinway concert grand piano. It is on this instrument that Dr. Wohlt also works with singers during their postoperative rehabilitation, for example.
