Dr. Richard J. Vivero graduated from Harvard College with a B.A. in Biology and returned home to earn his M.D. from the University of Miami Miller School Of Medicine, receiving honors with each degree. Dr. Vivero continued his education with a five-year residency in Otolaryngology at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. There, he was elected Chief Resident in his final year. Desiring additional expertise in voice and airway disorders, Dr. Vivero returned to Harvard to complete a fellowship in Laryngology and Laryngeal Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School under the guidance of the world-renowned Dr. Steven M. Zeitels. While at the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center, Dr. Vivero learned the latest and most advanced techniques to manage benign and cancerous lesions of the voicebox and airway, including awake laser surgery, endoscopic cancer treatment, medialization laryngoplasty, Botox, and other vocal cord procedures. In addition, he received advanced training in the management of professional voice users, including singers, actors, lawyers, and teachers, to ensure the best vocal outcomes. He has published significantly in this area and has presented at multiple national meetings regarding his work.
