Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Babak Larian, MD, FACS in Los Angeles, is announcing the launch of his newest website, http://www.parotidmd.com, which provides information regarding conditions, diagnosis, and treatments surrounding medical issues of the parotid glands. Most commonly, those individuals experiencing an issue with the parotid glands happen as a result of tumors, infection, or inflammation.
“I’m very excited about the launch of this website. There is not enough information available on the Internet about medical conditions surrounding the parotid gland, how it can be treated, and what the best options are for patients afflicted with the disorder,” said Dr. Larian.
ParotidMD.com will provide relevant information for those individuals seeking knowledge and guidance encompassing the parotid gland. Located in the upper part of the cheek, the parotid glands are the largest pair of salivary glands in a human's body and are essential in secreting saliva, which in turn allows us to chew, swallow, and digest our daily intake of food. Unfortunately for some, there are multiple disorders that can affect the parotid glands, including tumors and infections. The website will also provide information to visitors in the form of frequently asked questions and blogs.
“A lot of people don’t realize the significance that the parotid glands play in our every day lives. When the parotid gland isn’t functioning properly, due to a tumor or infection, it can interfere with a persons daily lives tremendously,” said Dr. Larian.
Dr. Larian is an expert in the treatment of parotid tumors, which he most commonly removes through a surgery called a minimally invasive parotidectomy. Coined and pioneered by Dr. Larian as the “Micro Parotidectomy,” this procedure offers a much faster recovery time for patients, as well as an extremely minimal scar, less pain, and less tissue trauma to the incision site.
“The Micro Parotidectomy is only performed by a few surgeons in the country. My approach allows patients to experience a much less discomfort while not exposing them to increased risks,” said Dr. Larian.
