SALIVARY GLAND SURGERY

SALIVARY GLAND SURGERY

Surgery on the salivary glands (submandibular and parotid) is a specialized area that requires knowledge and patience due to the proximity of the glands to very important nerves (e.g. facial nerve, sub lingual nerve).

The use of a relatively new device for intrasurgical detection of the facial nerve that we use averts the danger of injuring it, even in the most difficult cases of parotidectomy.
