Excision of Submandibular Gland

The submandibular glands are one three sets of salivary glands that are located beneath the floor of the mouth and account for approximately 70% of salivary volume with the parotid and sublingual glands accounting for the remaining 30%. Excision is usually performed for conditions associated with submandibular calculi (stones). It is scheduled under general anesthesia, on an outpatient basis and associated with little or no pain.
