Electrosurgery Technique Treatments we offer This procedure applies high frequency alternating electric current to biological tissue to cut or stop bleeding. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia. An endotracheal tube (a tube is placed into the windpipe through the mouth) is placed to maintain external respiration. Monopolar diathermy (electrical energy) is used to ablate (remove) the adenoids and also check the bleeding in the larger vessels. The adenoid tissue first turns white upon application of the monopolar diathermy and then shrinks considerably and is eventually vaporized. Packing of the back of the nose is performed after the procedure. 2. Electrocautery Treatments we offer This technique uses the heat conduction from a probe heated to a required temperature with the help of a direct electric current. The procedure is similar to the ablation adenoidectomy except for using electrocautery to cut the tissue and stop the bleeding.All the other steps remain the same. 3. Curette Adenoidectomy Treatments we offer The procedure is done under general anaesthesia.It’s quite similar to the traditional procedure except for using a curette (which is a sharp spoon-shaped scalpel/knife) for cutting the adenoid tissue. A mirror helps visualise the interior as the surgeon uses a suction catheter to drain the excess blood.A pressure packing may be done to establish the stoppage of bleeding. 4. Endoscopic Techniques Treatments we offer This technique involves inserting through the nose a tube-like instrument with a camera and a light source to better visualise the interior when compared to that of a mirror. 5. Endoscopy-assisted Coblation Treatments we offer The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia/local anaesthesia.It uses radiofrequency for the ablation (removal) of adenoid glands and the endoscope gives a better visual of the interior when compared to a mirror.The advantage of using this technique is lesser pain and quicker healing and recovery.No stitches may be required after the procedure. 6. Endoscopy- assisted Microdebrider Adenoidectomy Treatments we offer A rotary device called microdebrider is used to “shave” the adenoidal tissue.The adenoids are partially removed.The tissue near the Eustachian tubes are spared from damage.The recovery period is short and very little post-operative pain exists.

It usually takes about 2 to 5 days to recover from an Adenoidectomy. For complete recovery, it might take around 1 to 2 weeks. What happens If I delay Adenoidectomy? If you postpone your surgery, then your breathing and sleeping issues may worsen. In children, delaying Adenoidectomy can lead to hearing loss and speech impairment. Your adenoids can grow to completely block the back of your nose. In such cases, you will need to undergo emergency surgery, which carries more risks than planned surgery. Can my adenoids recur after an Adenoidectomy? Your adenoids rarely regrow after your surgery as they tend to shrink as you age. Even if they grow back, the chances of them blocking your airways are almost negligible Is Adenoidectomy painful? Adenoidectomy is usually done under general anaesthesia, so you will be asleep and feel no pain during the procedure. Your doctor will prescribe strong painkillers to manage your pain after the surgery. What causes adenoids to increase in size? Your adenoids may become enlarged for several reasons, including viral, bacterial and fungal diseases, parasites, allergy and cigarette smoke. Could Adenoidectomy affect my speech? Your bulging adenoids might affect the characteristics of your speech (pitch, tone and articulation). An Adenoidectomy will nonetheless eliminate the obstruction and enhance your tone and pitch. Can Adenoidectomy affect my immune system? Your adenoids are a small part of your immune system. There are many other ways your immune system can effectively fight infections. Adenoids eventually shrink and become inactive in adults, so they don’t have a major role in your immune system at a later stage. In fact, you may be at a lower risk of infections, after your adenoidectomy.
