The majority of adenoidectomies are performed in children, as the adenoids usually shrink by adolescence and do not require surgery in adults. This outpatient procedure is performed under general anesthesia. At Pediatric Otolaryngology, we use Coblation technology to remove the adenoids with radiofrequency energy. This technique offers patients less bleeding, less post-operative pain and shorter recovery times.
Branchial Cleft Cyst Surgery
These cysts can be effectively treated through surgical excision, which is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. A small drain may be left in the incision for the next 24 to 48 hours for proper healing. Most patients experience successful results from excision surgery.
Your child’s surgeon will determine which type of procedure is best for the individual type and stage of the cancer. Surgery helps reduce the risk of recurrence. After surgery, patients may require additional procedures and speech therapy to restore speech function.
Our doctors perform tonsillectomy using patented Coblation technology, which involves the use of radiofrequency energy to quickly and safely remove tissue for less bleeding and less post-operative pain. We do not use heating or burning to remove tissue. A tonsillectomy is much more commonly performed on children rather than adults. The surgery is most often an outpatient procedure and uses a general anesthetic for children.
The tracheostomy procedure is performed under general anesthesia and involves an incision in the neck to access the trachea. It is often performed as an emergency procedure to help patients receive oxygen. Recovery from tracheostomy surgery takes a few weeks and may require speech therapy along with plenty of rest.
