MGM Hospital CBD provides tonsillectomy treatment with the help of skilled and experienced ENT surgeons who specialize in performing the procedure. The hospital may use different surgical techniques depending on the individual patient's condition, such as traditional tonsillectomy, coblation tonsillectomy, or laser tonsillectomy.
Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure performed by an ENT (ear, nose, and throat) surgeon to remove the tonsils, which are two small masses of tissue located at the back of the throat. The procedure is usually performed on children or adults who have recurrent tonsillitis, obstructive sleep apnea, or other problems related to the tonsils.
The patient is given a general anesthesia to ensure they do not feel any pain during the surgery.
The patient is positioned on their back with their mouth open and head tilted back.
The surgeon uses a specialized instrument, such as a tonsillectomy clamp or a scalpel, to access the tonsils through the mouth.
Using the tonsillectomy clamp or scalpel, the surgeon carefully removes the tonsils from the back of the throat.
Once the tonsils are removed, the surgeon will use a small amount of absorbable material to stop any bleeding and promote healing.
The surgery usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete, and the patient can typically go home the same day. The recovery time can vary depending on the age and overall health of the patient, but most children can return to normal activities within a week or two. During the recovery period, the patient will need to avoid activities that could potentially damage the throat, such as eating hard or spicy foods. The patient will also need to follow up with their surgeon to ensure proper healing and to address any concerns or complications
