Salivary Gland Stone and Infection Center at UPMC

People suffering from problems affecting the saliva glands can find advanced care at UPMC's Salivary Gland Stone and Infection Center.

Doctors at the center:

How We Treat Salivary Gland Conditions

  • Minimally invasive salivary endoscopy: Doctors at the center can often remove stones that form in the glands through the salivary duct openings in the mouth with tiny 1mm endoscopes.
  • Classic open salivary gland surgery: People who have large gland stones or aren't able to have minimally invasive treatment can have classic open surgery, requiring a small cut. But, in most cases, we can avoid these open procedures.

Our Experts

Barry Schaitkin, MD and the team of experts at the UPMC Salivary Gland Stone and Infection Center commit to the proper diagnosis and treatment of people with salivary gland pathology and conditions.

We also work to advance the practice of minimally invasive salivary gland surgical techniques.

Research on Salivary Gland Diseases and Treatments

Dr. Schaitkin and his team are dedicated to furthering research and education on salivary gland diseases, conditions, and treatments.

Many of his patients agree to be a part of this research to help further the field, and Dr. Schaitkin often publishes his findings.

We may ask you if you'd like to play a role in our research, but this is an option. You have the right to accept or decline the offer.
