Adenoid Surgery

Adenoid Surgery

What is Adenoid?

Adenoid, or adenoid as it is called in medicine, is a tissue located between the nose and throat. It is a useful part of our immune system, such as the lymph nodes, that produces antibodies. However, when inflammation or an abnormal growth develops in this tissue, there is difficulty in breathing.

Depending on the severity of the discomfort, drug treatment methods can be applied. Our hospital's Ear Nose and Throat doctors have performed numerous operations related to adenoid surgery. After the examination, your doctor will determine the right method for you.

When Is Throat Meat Taken?

Adenoid treatment varies depending on the patient's condition. Sometimes the inflammation is cured by antibiotics. However, if there is no inflammation, the adenoid can be expected to shrink on its own. Surgery is considered in case of difficulty in breathing, speech disorder, and sleep apnea.

If there is no result with drug treatment and the symptoms continue severely, the adenoid is removed. Especially in case of recurrent growth and inflammation, surgery is the only solution.

Adenoid surgery is usually performed between the ages of 3-6. As the possibility of discomfort will decrease in advancing ages, the number of surgeries also decreases. However, there is no age limit for this procedure. Surgery can always be performed if needed.

Surgery Process

Our doctors prepare the patients and their relatives by informing them before the nasal surgery. This informational stage is especially important for children. The operation is performed under general anesthesia. The operation varies in the range of about 15-40 minutes.

After the necessary controls are provided by the anesthesiologist, the doctor can start the operation. With the help of the tool, the mouth is opened and fixed. Adenoid is taken from the mouth without making an incision in the skin.


After adenoid surgery, a cold pack is applied to the patient. You can eat a few hours after the surgery. If no problem is observed, the patient is discharged within the day. In the first few days, bad breath, sore throat and nasal discharge may be seen. It should take about 1-2 weeks for a full recovery.

Does it Affect the Immune System?

Adenoid plays an important role in the immune system. However, since there are other tissues that will perform this function, removal of adenoid does not affect immunity. After the surgery, patients can continue their lives in a healthy way.
