A Michigan Medicine pediatric specialist explains what tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy entails, from examination to recovery. Tonsils are made up of lymphatic tissue in the throat that defend against viruses and bacteria that enter the mouth. The adenoids , a mass of lymphatic tissue in the back of the nose, play a similar role in the immune system. But tonsils and adenoids may sometimes cause health issues in children and young adults.

Tonsillectomy: Procedure and recovery
Tonsillectomy | Michigan Medicine
A tonsillectomy is surgery to remove the tonsils. Sometimes the adenoids are removed during the same surgery. The tonsils and adenoids are in the throat. Your doctor did the surgery through your mouth. Most adults have a lot of throat pain for 1 to 2 weeks or longer. The pain may get worse before it gets better.

Date November 21, The study, which was published in the November issue of the Annals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology, followed 83 chronic tonsillitis sufferers over a three-year period. BWH researchers found that removing the tonsils was ultimately more effective than antibiotic treatments because those patients who had their tonsils extracted missed only 0. Before tonsillectomy, patients spent an average of six and a half weeks a year taking antibiotics, whereas after tonsillectomy the same patients averaged less than a day per year on antibiotics. Tonsillitis occurs when the tonsils — lymphoid tissue located in the back of the throat — become infected, either by bacteria or a virus.
Tonsillitis most often affects kids and teens, but adults can develop it, too. Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils. The tonsils are two small soft tissue masses found on each side of the back of your throat. Read on to learn more about what causes tonsillitis and how doctors treat the condition in adults. Bacterial infections cause tonsillitis between 15 to 30 percent of the time.
