NO! They have just recently started using endoscopes at that center! You will find many good Sialendoscopy surgeons(ENT Surgeons specially trained in Sialendoascopy) all over Bangalore. I would suggest your mother get an inexpensive Sialogram first. This will give us the same info as a Diagnostic Sialendoscopy at a fraction of the cost! Then, if it shows Sialolithiasis, we could plan a Sialendoscopic extraction of the stones. Drop into my clinic Healthcare@BAsaveshwaranagar for further evaluation and management..
