Dr. Osborne and Dr. Hamilton specialize in parotid, submandibular, sublingual and minor salivary gland surgery as well as the correction of complications associated with previous salivary gland procedures with a strong emphasis on minimally invasive tumor surgery, reconstructive facial surgery, facial reanimation, and the elimination of Frey’s Syndrome. As a surgical team Dr. Osborne and Dr. Hamilton have performed more salivary gland procedures and reconstructive facial surgery than any other surgical team in the world. They are currently managing over 20 patients a week. Their unique approach to surgery, combined experience, and constant innovation has allowed them to create many new and innovative surgical procedures that have bridged large gaps in current surgical techniques including transoral salivary gland surgery, reconstructive flaps for facial defects, and expanded the scope of sialendoscopy procedures to remove stones traditionally thought too large to be removed via traditional endoscopic techniques. Dr. Osborne and Dr. Hamilton are also considered master diagnosticians often serving as tertiary consultants, diagnosing illusive previously undiagnosable conditions. They have published extensively with over 80 peer-reviewed publications, books chapters, and online articles. Dr. Osborne and Dr. Hamilton havebeen invited speakers to many national and international conferences and are regarded as world leaders in the treatment of salivary gland disease. Here your safety and satisfaction are the top priorities and our goal is simple, to safely perform your procedure while maintaining a normal appearance and minimizing any potential complications. The doctors are Board Certified and Fellowship trained in both tumor removal (Dr. Osborne) and plastic surgery (Dr. Hamilton). Please contact us today to learn more.
