Parotid and Submandibular Gland Conditions
These glands are found in and around your mouth and throat. The major salivary glands are the parotid, submandibular and sublingual glands. They all secrete saliva into your mouth: the parotid through tubes that drain saliva, called salivary ducts, near the upper teeth, submandibular under your tongue, and the sublingual through many ducts in the floor of your mouth. Treatment of salivary issues falls into two categories: medical and surgical. Selection of treatment depends on the nature of the problem.

Chronic Ear Infections
Surgery for middle ear infections often means placing a drainage tube into the eardrum of one or both ears. It's one of the most common childhood operations.

Inserting Ear Tubes (myringotomy or tympanostomy with tube placement)
May help to relieve hearing problems; Helps prevent a buildup of pressure and fluid in the middle ear; Allows fluid to drain from the middle ear; Ventilates the middle ear after the fluid is gone; May prevent repeat ear infections.

Otolaryngic Allergy
The diagnosis and treatment of inhalant (pollens), mold and food allergies. Allergy is a condition, often inherited, in which the immune system of the affected person reacts to something in the environment or ingested that does not affect most other people. Allergy is often regarded as only "hay fever," with nasal congestion, sneezing and watery eyes. However, there are cases of association between allergy symptoms and many ENT disorders. Diseases such as chronic sinusitis, post nasal drip, cold symptoms, dizziness, hearing loss, tinnitus, chronic cough, asthma, headaches, chronic fatigue, and skin eczema are examples.
