About Tonsil Removal Procedures

Experience the Numerous Benefits of Tonsil Removal

Removing the tonsils procedure is typically recommended for people that experience chronic sore throat, peritonsillar abscesses, upper airway obstruction, sleep apnea, or chronic tonsillitis. Most physicians recommend that children under the age of 18 wait to get a tonsillectomy procedure unless the child experiences chronic throat infections that are not adequately treated with antibiotics or life-threatening conditions that impair normal breathing such as sleep apnea.

The tonsils are part of the body’s line of defense against airborne viral and bacterial infections. The tonsils may become chronically inflamed or swollen in both adults and children, and tonsil removal may be recommended as it can have multiple benefits for patients. Enlarged or chronically inflamed tonsils can be the source of chronic discomfort. Furthermore, enlarged or chronically inflamed tonsils can contribute to a variety of other highly concerning health conditions if not properly addressed.

About Tonsillectomy Procedures

Patients undergo tonsillectomy procedure while under general anesthesia. The surgeon will remove the tonsils through the mouth and cauterize the incision made at the base of the tonsils. No external incisions are required, and it is typically an outpatient procedure. A normal tonsil removal procedure lasts for about an hour.
