Adenoidectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the adenoids, lymphoid tissue located in the back of the nasal cavity. This procedure is often recommended for children who have breathing difficulties, recurrent ear infections, or chronic sinusitis due to enlarged adenoids. Post-operative care includes pain management, hydration, and rest.
Adenoids are a mass of lymphatic tissue located behind the nasal passage. They help fight off infections in children but often shrink and disappear by adulthood. Symptoms of enlarged adenoids include snoring, difficulty breathing through the nose, and recurrent ear infections. Treatment may involve medications or an adenoidectomy.
Deviated Nasal Septum (DNS)
A deviated nasal septum occurs when the thin wall between your nasal passages (septum) is displaced to one side. This can cause nasal congestion, nosebleeds, and difficulty breathing. Treatment may include decongestants, antihistamines, or surgical intervention (septoplasty).
Ear infections occur when viruses or bacteria cause inflammation in the middle ear. Symptoms include ear pain, reduced hearing, and fever. Treatment often involves antibiotics, pain relievers, or in recurrent cases, insertion of ear tubes.
Nasal polypectomy is a surgical procedure to remove polyps from the nasal passages or sinuses. These benign growths can cause sinusitis, breathing difficulties, and loss of smell. After the procedure, corticosteroid nasal sprays are often used to prevent recurrence.
Otitis media is inflammation or infection of the middle ear, common in children. Symptoms include ear pain, fever, and difficulty hearing. It’s often caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Treatment may include antibiotics, pain relievers, and occasionally, surgical insertion of tubes in the ears.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that changes the shape or function of the nose. It’s used to correct breathing issues, congenital defects, or for cosmetic reasons. Post-operative care may include nasal packing, pain management, and avoiding strenuous activity.
Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct a deviated nasal septum. It aims to improve breathing, control nosebleeds, or allow better access to the nose for other surgeries. Post-operative care may include nasal packing, rest, and avoiding strenuous activity.
Sinus surgery is performed to clear blocked sinuses or to enlarge the channels leading to the sinuses. It’s often recommended for recurrent or chronic sinusitis unresponsive to medication. Post-operative care includes nasal irrigation, avoiding nose blowing, and rest.
Tongue tie, or ankyloglossia, is a condition present at birth that restricts the tongue’s range of motion. It can interfere with breastfeeding, speech, and oral hygiene. Treatment, when needed, involves a simple surgical procedure called a frenotomy to cut the lingual frenulum.
Tonsillitis is an infection of the tonsils causing sore throat, red tonsils, difficulty swallowing, and fever. It’s commonly caused by viral or bacterial infections.Treatments include rest, hydration, over-the-counter remedies, antibiotics for bacterial tonsillitis, and tonsillectomy in recurrent cases.
Tympanoplasty is a surgery to repair a hole in the eardrum (tympanic membrane) or the middle ear’s small bones. It aims to restore hearing and prevent recurrent ear infections. Postoperative care includes keeping the ear dry, avoiding blowing the nose, and managing pain with medications.
