What Are the Different Throat Treatments at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC?
At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, we treat throat disorders by removing any growths, such as cysts, or abnormalities that interfere with your ability to eat, swallow, drink, breathe, and communicate effectively. Dr. Taghizadeh is a well-trained and highly skilled ENT specialist who provides the following throat treatments:
The adenoid is a gland that is located at the back of the throat, and this gland plays a vital role in the immune system’s ability to fight off infectious microorganisms. In some instances, the adenoid can become enlarged and obstruct a person’s airways, in which case an adenoidectomy is required. An adenoidectomy is an invasive surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia where the adenoid gland is removed through the mouth. Removing an enlarged adenoid gland can cut down on recurrent throat and upper respiratory infections and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.
A cyst is a benign mass of tissue that can appear on the face, arms, legs, and practically anywhere throughout the body. Cysts can also be located on the vocal cords, tonsils, and other areas of the throat. If a cyst becomes inflamed and fills with fluid, Dr. Taghizadeh may drain and compress it to provide relief. Because throat cysts are located in such a sensitive area and can affect breathing and swallowing, it’s important to seek immediate attention when one appears. Cyst removal is the most common surgical procedure Dr. Taghizadeh uses to remove cysts that limit essential functions of the throat while reducing scarring and other damage.
The parotid is a large salivary gland that’s positioned between the cheeks and jaw and extends to the front of the ear. Persistent infections and swelling can cause abnormal masses and tumors to develop in the parotid, making surgical removal of the gland the only possible form of treatment. A parotidectomy is a surgical procedure where one or all parts of the parotid gland are removed. Patients can receive a partial or total parotidectomy depending on the severity of their condition. A partial parotidectomy involves removal of the superficial lobe, which makes up 25 percent of the parotid gland. A complete parotidectomy involves removal of both lobes, surrounding tissues, and a portion of the facial nerve.
A tonsillectomy involves the surgical removal of the tonsils from the throat. Tonsillectomy is usually recommended for people who suffer from chronic and recurring bouts of tonsillitis infections and sore throats, but Dr. Taghizadeh also uses this surgical procedure to treat patients who suffer from sleep apnea.
