What is Adenoidectomy?

Adenoidectomy is the surgery to remove the adenoids which prevent the persistent nasal obstruction or sinus infection which causes throat complications. The surgery is performed in place of the tonsillectomy. Adenoids are a mass of lymph tissue that is present behind the nasal passage. Surgery is the solution if antibiotics don’t work.
