Tonsil Surgery

Overview

What is Tonsillitis?

Tonsillitis is a condition marked by a severe infection in the tonsils, i.e. small masses of lymphoid tissue present in the throat that form a part of our immune system and serve as the first line of defence against various infections. These trap all the germs entering your airway and prevent them from triggering an infection. Tonsils also help to produce antibodies that help to curb serious infections. Tonsilitis can cause pain and discomfort and while most people recover within a few days with the help of simple medication, those experiencing persistent or frequent infections might need to get their tonsils removed surgically. This is commonly referred to as tonsillectomy.

Tonsillitis Complications:

  • Obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Breathing problems
  • Peritonsillar abscess
  • Tonsillar abscess

Tonsillitis Causes:

  • Rhinovirus
  • Enterovirus
  • Parainfluenza
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Adenovirus

Tonsillitis Symptoms:

  • Redness and swelling in the tonsils
  • Soreness in the throat
  • White or yellowish patches on the tonsils
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Pungent breath
  • Drooling in children

Tonsillitis Diagnosis:

Tonsillitis is diagnosed by carrying out a simple physical examination using an endoscope. A throat culture may also be collected for detailed assessment and evaluation. The doctor may also look for rashes (scarlatina), which may be associated with strep throat, and spleen enlargement caused by mononucleosis, which may also lead to the inflammation of the tonsils.

Tonsil Surgery

In the case of mild infections, the problem can be easily managed with the help of simple medication. Severe infections may call for the need for tonsillectomy, which refers to the surgical extraction of infected tonsils. This is done under the influence of anaesthesia and may even involve the use of ultrasonic vibrations. This can be done in a number of ways, which include:

  • Cold knife dissection, which involves the removal of the tonsils using a scalpel.
  • Cauterization, which is carried out by burning the affected tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) More information

all-surgeries

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.
