Unexplained recurrent salivary gland swellings form the basis for diagnostic endoscopy to provide insights on small stones, narrowing of duct or other pathology not caught on imaging modalities.
Scarless Salivary Stone Removal
In this era of minimal access surgery, the Sialendoscope has revolutionized the treatment of stones in salivary gland ducts with approaches ranging from complete endoscopic to laser fragmentation and combined approaches.
Scarless salivary duct narrowing correction
Forming the second most cause of salivary obstruction after stones, stenosis was usually untreatable before the advent of the Sialendoscope. Endoscopic dilatation and stenting form the cornerstone for treatment. We specialise in this treatment by dilating the duct so that saliva doesn’t get blocked within duct. This is a simple repeatable procedure for rapid symptom relief with no major complications.
Laser Salivary Duct Stone Treatment
Dr. Varun Rai specialises in the field of LASER sialolithotripsy. This is novel technique in which difficult stones are broken down into small fragments using laser which then allow the stone particles to pass from the duct leading to a fast and quick recovery.
“Sialendoscopy is a safe and effective procedure and since not many perform the surgery in Delhi, Dr Rai’s team would be the best way forward.”
“One may blindly consult Dr.Varun Rai for Salivary gland stone related problems. He is very helpful, kind in behaviour, responsible and always available for help.”
“I would highly recommend Dr Varun for any case related to stones in your salivary gland. The team at Ganga ram is doing a wonderful job! I had three large stones removed without excision of my gland. The way Dr Varun handled my case was brilliant. He was extremely helpful, and was always a WhatsApp message away, during both my pre and postoperative period.”
Had a great experience with Dr. Varun Rai. He was the 5th doctor I visited, when the previous four weren’t able to confidently pinpoint the exact problem and the exact gland. I had an obstruction in my submandibular salivary gland which was correctly diagnosed as a stone. Dr. Varun is a specialist in the minimally invasive procedure of sialoendoscopy. The surgery was neat and recovery almost completely painless.Dr. Varun goes above and beyond what is expected of him to make the patient comfortable and the whole process seamless. He was very involved all the time. I would definitely recommend him.
I visited Dr Varun for my Father’s Sialendocopy, since he is the only expert in Delhi. Besides being a specialist in a rare disease Dr Varun is very friendly, he would know his pateint’s queries already and answers them in great details.
One of the best doctors I met so far.
