Tonsillectomy

The tonsils are located in the back of your mouth and can cause pain or soreness if they become infected. A tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure that is used to remove your tonsils and treat inflammation or infection. If you are in need of surgery, you can save time and money on your tonsillectomy procedure by scheduling with an ambulatory surgery center through I Need A Surgery.

How do I know if I need a tonsillectomy?

For those who are suffering with any of the following problems, a tonsillectomy is often required.

  • Complications resulting from enlarged tonsils
  • Rare tonsil diseases
  • Chronic, recurring or severe tonsillitis

How is the tonsillectomy procedure performed?

Since the procedure is performed using a general anesthetic, you aren’t going to be aware of the surgery or feel pain during the procedure. The surgeon will either use a specialized tool or a blade to cut out the tonsils. Specialized tools use either high-energy heat, heat or sound waves to eliminate any tissues and to help control the bleeding.

What is recovery like after a tonsillectomy?

Just about everyone is going to experience some degree of pain following the surgical procedure. Pain is generally in your throat, but it can also be in the neck, jaws or ears. To promote the recovery process and reduce pain, use the following:

  • Make sure to take any pain medications given to you by the surgeon.
  • It is imperative that you consume an ample amount of fluids following the surgery. Ice pops and water are great choices.
  • Immediately after your surgery, opt for bland foods that are easier for you to swallow.
  • For several days after the procedure, you want to spend time resting. Avoid any strenuous activities for a couple weeks after your surgical procedure.

How much does a tonsillectomy cost?

A tonsillectomy can cost about $36,500 at a hospital. When you schedule your tonsillectomy at an ambulatory surgery center through I Need A Surgery, you will pay an average cost of just $3,650.
