An adenoidectomy is the surgical removal of the adenoid glands. These glands are located above the roof of the mouth, behind the nose.
Benefits of Adenoidectomy
This surgical procedure can help open the airways, leading to smoother breathing and sleep. Enlarged adenoids can lead to snoring and even sleep apnea, which can be challenging to manage in children. It can also help stop chronic infections, congestion, and drainage, leaving your children happier and able to enjoy their day-to-day life more. Because an adenoidectomy is a short outpatient surgery, your child will be able to recover from the comfort of your home.
