In brief: Laryngologist
When the rln is injured, the vocal cord is paralyzed.
Be seen by a laryngologist if you havent already. Some injections (dermal fillers) can be done to improve the voice by moving the vocal cord over a few mm. There is s more permanent solution with a procedure called thyroplasty which uses a silastic implant to push the paralyzed cord into a position that improves the voice.
