What is Tonsillectomy?
Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils. It is often performed along with adenoidectomy, which is a surgical procedure to remove the adenoid glands. Tonsillectomy helps in removing recurrent throat infections. It lessens severe throat infections for a minimum of two years.

How is Tonsillectomy performed?

  • A small tool is inserted into the mouth to keep it open.
  • The tongue is depressed to view the throat.
  • The tonsils are then removed with a surgical instrument.
  • The cuts do not require stitches.

How to prepare for Tonsillectomy?
  • Any bleeding disorder should be controlled before the surgery.
  • If the patient has acute tonsillitis, it should be treated before tonsillectomy. Tonsillectomy may be postponed for three to four weeks in case of treatment.
  • The patient will go though a complete physical examination.
  • The patient will need to do some blood tests.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient is taking, including herbs and vitamins.
  • The patient will be asked to take certain medication about 10 days before surgery.
  • If the patient needs to take medication, it can be taken with a small amount of water
