When Your ENT Suggests Adenoid Surgery




By Javier Fuller

Adenoid surgery or adenoid removal is one of the most common ENT surgeries. But you must resort to extreme step of surgery only when your ENT specialist is hopeless of treating the complication through medications and other alternative ways.

This adenoid removal task is often performed with operation of tonsillitis. Adenoid removal or Adenoidectomy involves removal of pair of adenoid glands that exists in nasopharynx (nasal part of the pharynx).

But before undergoing an adenoidectomy, patient as well as doctor must be sure about it. Most often these glands get swelled and become greater in size causing an obstruction in nasopharynx path. It may result in discomfort in breathing through the nose and breathing dysfunction during nap. Also in case of chronic otitis media this surgery is recommended.

When glands get enlarged, initially medications are used. But if it doesn't give the desired results, doctors have no other option but to recommend adenoidectomy. Kids having chronic tonsillitis are often suggested to undergo adenoid removal even if its size is normal.

This surgery is performed under the influence of local Anesthesia. Most often microdebrider is used to cut out the gland. Post operation twenty four hour care in hospital is must before discharging the patient for home.

Although surgery is not very complicated, your ENT specialist takes utmost care. Post surgery patients are needed to follow a restricted food plan for a few days. After surgery you need to keep track of your breathing comfort and any after effect for first few days.

Since in adults this gland automatically gets reduced into very smaller size and has probably no significant relevance for the body, so this surgery is primarily meant for kids having adenoid disorder.

If a kid is undergoing adenoid as well as tonsillitis surgery simultaneously, the operation may result in severe complications. In that case the child must be provided with best possible post surgery medical care.

Post surgery medications must be consumed for the prescribed period. And thereon you can periodically visit your ENT surgeon for check up. At least six month post operation monitoring is a preferred practice recommended by ENT doctors.

So, take post operation care seriously and before letting your kid undergo this surgery be sure that the surgery is inevitable.
