Adenotonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove both the adenoids and the tonsils, which can become necessary if the tonsils become chronically inflamed or infected.
Preparing for Your Surgery
Before undergoing an adenotonsillectomy surgery, a medical evaluation is necessary. The evaluation may include a physical examination, blood tests, and other diagnostic tests to assess the patient's overall health and determine if surgery is safe.
Your surgeon will help you understand exactly what to expect during your surgery, explaining the tools and techniques that will be used to create your results. You’ll also receive thorough aftercare instructions to help you stay comfortable after the surgery is over.
