Material and Methods :The rolling the parotid tissue over the nerve after dissecting with Met-zembaum scissors instead of knife, lessen pulling trauma and nerve cutting by knife. Eleven superficial paro-tidectomies since June 2009 were done with rolling technique and preliminary report is presented. Results :Total 11 parotidectomies were done using proposed technique with tolerable complications(temporary facial dysfunction in 4 cases). Conclusion :Rolling method using metzembaum scissors could be applied to parotid operation.
