Tonsillectomy

Tonsils can be responsible for a wide variety of symptoms, from bad sore throats, time off school/work etc, to bad breath and tonsil stones. They can also cause snoring and sleep apnoea in children and adults.
Curative treatment requires an operation. In children, a standard dissection tonsillectomy is performed, as a daycase. In adults a subtotal laser removal is performed, since this is much less painful than dissection tonsillectomy – also performed as a daycase. The reason for this difference in approach depending on age is because adults get a lot of pain after traditional tonsillectomy, young children are not so bad.
