About Tonsillectomy Surgery
A tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils. Tonsils are two small glands located in the back of the throat. Tonsils house white blood cells to help fight infection, but sometimes the tonsils themselves become infected.
Procedure takes about 30 to 45 minutes and is performed under general anaesthesia
There are different ways to remove tonsils.
Cold knife (steel) dissection: This is the most common method used. In this method the surgeon removes the tonsils with a scalpel.
Cauterization: This method involves burning away the tissues through a process called Ultrasonic Vibration (using sound waves).
Recovery time for a tonsillectomy is usually at least 10 days to two weeks.
