Adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy

This part refers to the adenoids or pharyngeal tonsils, and the tonsils. When ear infections and inflammations are recurring the adenoids are almost always responsible. They are removed using general anaesthesia.

The tonsils are sometimes so big that they may cause irregular and difficult breathing in children leading to problems sleeping. This also makes the tonsils more prone to infections, etc. A simple and efficient solution is to reduce the tonsils using a laser. If tonsillitis occurs several times a year despite being treated with antibiotics, it would be advisable to perform a complete tonsillectomy.
