Pioneering Health Care

The UCSF Sialendoscopy and Salivary Duct Surgery Center is dedicated to offering individualized care with a focus on minimally invasive approaches to the salivary duct. Each patient coming for consultation can expect a detailed analysis of his/her history, prior imaging (CT scan or MRI), a thorough head and neck exam, and often an ultrasound exam.

Sialendoscopy, or salivary duct endoscopy, is a tool used to examine the salivary ducts of the parotid and submandibular glands. This procedure is performed for patients who notice recurrent swelling of the major salivary glands with eating. Salivary duct obstruction can occur from salivary duct stones (sialolithiasis), duct scarring (stenosis), inflammatory disorders of the salivary gland, or salivary gland tumors.
