Review

What I liked: "A doctor who gives you his full attention, inspires confidence in a patient and is an exceptionally skilled surgeon. Totally pain free and minimal recovery time. Back at work 4 days later!"

I went for: Hysterectomy

Patient who saw Dr. Timothy Mould in The London Clinic

"Exceptionally skilled surgeon, collaborates with other top specialists in other fields (hugely useful in complex cases such as mine), extremely knowledgeable and highly regarded. Would not be here to write this were it not for him and the crack team he put together on my behalf. And a nice guy too."

Patient who saw Dr. Timothy Mould in The London Clinic

"Alistair Windsor operated on my daughter Victoria in April 2012. We thank him for all his hard work and kindness."

The submandibular gland is one of the 3 major salivary glands in the head & neck. Surgical removal is indicated if there is a tumour within the gland itself and is carried out through an incision in the neck. There are several important nerves associated with the lower lip, tongue movement and sensation which have to be avoided during the procedure.
The gland is connected by a tube which opens into the floor of the mouth under the tip of the tongue. Often, stones can form within this tube causing problems with the gland itself called 'meal time syndrome' i.e the gland is painful and swells when more saliva is produced when you're just about to eat. In this instance, the stone can be removed through a cut in the mouth rather than removing the gland itself which involves making an incision in the neck. The gland usually returns to normal function after stone removal.
