Tonsils are two oval-shaped pads of tissue located at each side of the back of your throat, and when they are inflamed, the effect is known as Tonsillitis. Swollen tonsils, a sore throat, trouble swallowing, and tender lymph nodes on the sides of the neck are all signs and symptoms of tonsillitis. Tonsillitis effect is mostly developed by general Virus, but the presence of bacterial infections may also cause it.
Common signs and symptoms of tonsillitis include:
- Tonsils that are flushed and swollen
- Tonsils with a white or yellow coating or patches
- Throat irritation
- Swallowing is difficult or painful.
- Lymph nodes (enlarged, tender glands) in the neck
- Scratchy, muffled, or throaty sound
- Breath problems
- Stomach ache, particularly in children under the age of six.
- Neck stiffness
- Pain in the head
Coblation(controlled ablation) for Tonsillectomy:
The use of heat to cut and cauterise the tissue is one of the most effective ways to conduct tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies. The heat causes some tissue damage, which can lead to a long, painful recovery period. This issue is mainly found in children. However, a treatment called Coblation (controlled ablation) decreases recovery time and pain and is available at Niyati Hospital conducted by our best throat surgeon in Ahmedabad.
A tonsillectomy takes about 30 minutes and is performed under general anaesthesia. Tonsils are removed with a scalpel in the most popular procedure. Tonsillectomy may also be performed using Coblation, radio-frequency ablation, or a CO2 laser. The immune system of the body is unaffected by a tonsillectomy.
We at Niyati Hospital use Coblation (plasma technology) under high-definition endoscopic guidance for painless and bloodless removal of tonsils and adenoids. Tonsillectomy with Coblation is a new modern surgical procedure for removing tonsils rapidly and safely.
An adenoidectomy takes about 30 minutes and is performed under general anaesthesia. To fully extract the adenoids, we use powered instruments and Coblation through the mouth. The surgeon can also use nasal endoscopic assistance to ensure that the adenoids have been fully removed.
In a Micro-laryngeal Surgery operation, the throat’s vocal folds are magnified using a microscope, endoscope, or film enlargement to see them in greater detail. An additional operation, such as removing a cyst, polyp, swelling, or tumour, is often performed in conjunction with Micro-laryngeal Surgery. This Surgery usually takes 30-45 min, performed under general anaesthesia.
