Adenoidectomy is the surgical procedure to remove the adenoids that are swollen or enlarged because of repeated infections or allergies.


Children show the following symptoms when their adenoids become enlarged.

  • Mouth breathing
  • Nasal obstruction, nasal discharge
  • Frequent ear infections leading to serous otitis media ( Fluids in the middle ear)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Adenoid facies

An adenoidectomy is usually done under general anesthesia. It is a short and straightforward procedure accomplished using one of many techniques like curette, cautery, coblator, debrider and the patient can go home the same day. Usually, the patient recovers within a week after the surgical procedure. Medication is provided to reduce pain and swelling.

The patient will temporarily have a sore throat, bad breath, earaches, or stuffy-feeling nose during their recovery, which lasts up to one week.

Essential things to do during recovery:

  • Keep the body hydrated as hydration helps in alleviating the pain
  • Avoid crunchy, hard to swallow, hot and spicy food
  • Soft food and liquids to be taken

Go for immediate medical care post-surgery if patient develops oral bleeding, breathing difficulties & choking, high fever & pain.
