What is Tonsillectomy?

Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure in which both of the palatine tonsils are completely removed to treat recurrent throat infections or obstructive sleep apnea. Though tonsils are a part of the body’s immune system, their removal doesn’t increase the risk of infections. The problem of tonsillitis can appear in both adults and children. So, if you or your loved ones need to undergo a tonsillectomy in Ghaziabad, contact our ENT surgeons right away.

When you visit our ENT specialist, he will begin the consultation by asking you questions about your symptoms, since when are you having them, or about your diet and lifestyle. The ENT specialist will perform a general examination to check for swelling around the tonsils, and may also inspect the throat from outside to check for signs of enlarged lymph glands or a rash that may have occurred. The ENT doctor may also take a swab from your throat for closer inspection and to check if the cause of the infection is viral or bacterial. The doctor may also recommend you take a blood test. These diagnostic tests can help the doctor determine the cause of the condition and choose the best treatment.

There will be no stitches and you will recover completely in 10 to 14 days. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes and you will be shifted to the hospital room.
