Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to treat recurrent throat infections and obstructive sleep apnea.
Tonsillectomy is performed to remove both palatine tonsils from the back of the throat. The patient is put to sleep with general or local anesthesia. The mouth is kept wide open using an instrument. The surgeon then cuts away the tonsils with a heated device, laser, or scalpel.
An ENT surgeon who has expertise in performing surgical procedures is the right doctor to consult for Tonsillectomy.
The success rate of Tonsillectomy is approximately 98% and the chances of failure are less than 1% which could be due to postoperative bleeding.
Anesthesia risks, swelling, bleeding, wound infection could be some of the indications that may indicate the failure of Tonsillectomy.
