I heard of it!
But I doubt I'd ever let anyone other than James P. Thomas touch my vocal folds.www.voicedoctor.net
You can go to Media -> Cases results and heard many of the results, although they are low quality record.
Edit: Personally I am not sure why people are so much against voice surgery, well there is CTA which I won't recommend, but the surgery which actually shortens (cuts) the vocal folds to be shorter seems like a good option.
The only risks I heard people mention are over-cutting, leaving with abnormally high pitch - though this is not much of a risk if you go to an experienced doctor and don't cut too much, I think some doctors today have a lot of experience with that as some been practicing for years now. (That's why I say I would only go to James Thomas, he is the only one that I know that has good experience with that)
And the second problem is resonance mis-match, but there is thyroid elevation to change resonance and you can also discuss making the pharynx smaller in circular size but make an incision and pulling away extra tissue, making it smaller. - I actually asked an E.N.T and surgeon about it and he suggested this specific technique and said it should work.
