The cost of Tonsillectomy Surgery includes the following:
Preoperative diagnostic tests cost (Blood tests, Oral examination, etc.)
Type of Surgery (Traditional tonsillectomy or Intracapsular tonsillectomy )
Post-Operative cost (depends on the number of follow-up sessions)
Medicine cost (anti-inflammatory, painkillers, etc.)
Patient's hospital stay
The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:
Type of hospital and room opted (General, Twin sharing, or Single room)
The severity of the disease
Post-surgical complication, if it happens (such as delayed hemorrhage or infection)
Cost of Blood products (if required)
An extended stay at the Hospital
Cost of accommodation during follow-ups, in case the patient is not a local resident
The preoperative coagulation screening for patients undergoing tonsillectomy consists of determining the prothrombin time and the activated partial thromboplastin time. These are covered in the package.
The costs of medicines are included in the package when the patient is hospitalized. If the patient purchases any medicines outside the hospital, they are not covered in the package.
It is usually done as an outpatient procedure which means you can go home the day of the surgery. An overnight stay is possible if the surgery is done on a young child or if you have any complicated medical condition. You can schedule your appointment 1-2 weeks after the surgery.
Most patients will fully recover from tonsillectomy in 14 days, while some may take longer. Pain medications are given to manage the pain and a good recovery. You need to see your doctor if you see any bright red blood from the nose or in the saliva. Surgery to stop bleeding is necessary, which is not included in the package.
Most health insurance policies will cover the surgery, provided the policy has been renewed for a minimum of two years. You may have to provide proof of recurring tonsillitis or swelling tonsils that interfere with breathing.
Intracapsular tonsillotomy is an alternative surgical option for tonsillectomy, but it has favorable outcomes in children, and the treatment of choice in adults remains unclear.
