Adenoid Surgery

Overview

What is adenoid hypertrophy? 
The adenoid glands are small lumps of tissue located behind the nose that form a part of our immune system and help our body to fight a wide gamut of infection-causing germs when we are kids. As a child reaches 7 years of age, these start to shrink and become completely useless within a few years. These can sometimes become enlarged due to infections and allergies. This can obstruct the airway, making it difficult for the child to breathe. Enlarged adenoids can make you more vulnerable to ear infections.  
Complications:

  • Growth of a mass or lump in the nasal passage
  • Breathing problems
  • Swallowing difficulties
  • Problems with sleep
  • Blockage in the nasal passage

Causes:

  • Adenoid injury
  • Streptococcus infection
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Rhinovirus
  • Viral infections like HIV, rhinovirus and adenovirus (in rare cases)

Symptoms:

  • Sore throat
  • Stuffy nose
  • Dryness in the mouth
  • Chapped lips
  • Snoring
  • Sleep apnoea

Diagnosis:
ENT specialists usually conduct a physical exam to diagnose and assess the infection and find out its location. In some cases, blood tests and throat cultures may also be carried out to evaluate the severity of the condition.

Treatment

Adenoid Surgery

Adenoidectomy is a surgical procedure that aims at extracting the adenoids. The surgery is mostly performed on children lying in the age group of 1 to 7 years. As the child approaches 7 years of age, the adenoids start to shrink and become vestigial. The procedure is carried out under the influence of general anaesthesia and usually done on an outpatient basis.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) More information

How should I prepare for the surgery?

To prepare for surgery, take good care of your health and try to learn as much as you can about the procedure. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a successful procedure and heal faster with a smooth recovery. 

Do I need to take any medicine before my surgery?

Depending upon the procedure and the patient's health, our surgeons may recommend some patients to medications. However, these medications are prescribed after a thorough evaluation of their medical history and overall health. Therefore, you need to inform the doctor about your allergies and previous medical conditions in advance

How long will it take to recover?

Recovery time after the surgery may vary from one patient to another. Usually, it depends on several factors, such as the patient's age, the type of surgery and the adversity of the problem that is being addressed during the surgery. Therefore, it is important to talk to your doctor about the same prior to your surgery.
