Tonsillectomy with Dr. Latif Dharamsi

Children may have many different problems with their tonsils and adenoids. Similar to lymph nodes, these structures are located in the back of the throat (tonsils) and back of the nose (adenoid).

Some children get recurring infections, such as strep throat, requiring many antibiotic courses and time lost from school and sports. Other children have enlargement of these structures, resulting in snoring, sleep apnea, mouth breathing, speech, and swallowing issues. Some children have a chronic infection of these structures with chronic cough, drainage, and bad breath.

Tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (removal of the tonsils and adenoid) can now be safely performed as a brief outpatient procedure. We use the latest techniques to reduce pain and hasten recovery.
