As part of the Tanner Clinic team, we are located within the otolaryngology department on the West wing of the 2nd floor of the main Tanner Clinic building in Layton. Our laryngology group seeks to offer expert care in all aspects of voice, swallowing, and breathing as it relates to the larynx. Whether your case merits surgical intervention or can be ably treated with a few sessions of voice or swallow therapy, we provide the full spectrum of care for your throat.
Ryan K. Meacham, MD
After graduating from Brigham Young University, he completed medical school at The Ohio State University. He completed a five year otolaryngology residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. He completed an extra year of subspecialty training in laryngology at the Oregon Health & Sciences University. This has given him special insight into treating laryngeal lesions, neurologic voice disorders, and swallowing problems. His research interests include comparison of different types of vocal cord implants for treating unilateral vocal cord paralysis, as well as investigating different methods to treat subglottic stenosis.
Dr Meacham got into medicine because he enjoys the teaching aspect of medicine in the doctor-patient relationship. He savors the one on one time with each individual patient he meets. His goal is to make sure that not only do patients feel educated about their throat condition, but they come away having genuinely enjoyed their office visit.
