This is one of the most common surgeries performed by an ENT.
Children that suffer from constant throat infections and ear infections are the usual patients for these procedures. While it is thought that the tonsils and adenoids are involved in immune system health, the removal of these doesn’t affect a child’s ability to fight disease and actually improves the child’s health. No more sick days due to ear and throat infections!
The procedure is performed by an ENT under general anesthesia and the recovery time is brief.
