Adenoids Removal Surgery – Diagnosis, Procedure
What is Adenoidectomy
Procedure of Adenoidectomy Surgery?
An adenoidectomy is typically performed by an ENT surgeon while the patient is under general anesthesia. The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis.
The removal of adenoids usually occurs through the mouth. The surgeon uses a small instrument to hold the mouth open. Subsequently, the adenoids are extracted by either creating a minor incision or cauterizing the area using a heated device.
To manage bleeding during and after the surgery, the surgeon may cauterize the area and place absorbent material, like gauze, as a packing. Stitches are typically not necessary.
Following the procedure, the patient remains in a recovery room until they regain consciousness.
