Adenoids are a part of the immune system that protect the body from viruses and bacteria, especially during infancy and childhood. As a person grows, they shrink in size and disappear completely after some time. 
Sometimes instead of shrinking, these adenoids get infected due to bacterial/viral infection or allergies and need to be removed. The surgery for the removal of infected or inflamed adenoid glands (or adenoiditis) is known as adenoidectomy.

Adenoidectomy Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnostic tests for adenoiditis treatment in Lucknow

Diagnosis and treatment for adenoiditis are provided by an otolaryngologist or ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) doctor. An ENT specialist is a medical professional who specializes in treating infections, diseases, and conditions of the ear, nose, and throat.

If you are exhibiting the symptoms of adenoiditis, your doctor will perform the following diagnostic tests for you:

  • Physical examination and medical history: to determine the exact location of the infection along with any family or medical history that makes the patient more susceptible to throat infections such as adenoiditis.
  • Throat swabs: to examine the sample of bacteria/virus collected from the throat and determine the disease-causing pathogen.
  • Blood culture: It helps determine the extent of the infection by showing whether the pathogen is present in blood as well.
  • X-rays: X-rays help in determining the size of the adenoid glands, as well as the extent of the infection and inflammation present.
  • Endoscopy: In endoscopy, a camera/endoscope is inserted in the throat to visualize the throat area to determine the extent and severity of the condition.

Adenoidectomy surgery in Lucknow

An adenoidectomy is a relatively straightforward surgical treatment in which the surgeon removes the adenoid glands completely under either general or local anesthesia. During the surgery, the surgeon will keep the mouth open using a retractor. There are several surgical techniques that can be used to remove the adenoids. However, most commonly, adenoids are either cauterized or removed via small incisions. After that, the incisions are sealed off using a heating device (electrocauterization). Once the surgery is completed, the patient is moved to the recovery ward. In severe cases, the patient may need to be hospitalized for some time, but in most cases, the procedure is performed, outpatient.

If you are looking for adenoidectomy treatment in Lucknow, Pristyn Care is the best option for you. You can book an appointment with the best ENT specialists for adenoidectomy treatment. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Can adults undergo an adenoidectomy?

For most people, adenoids shrink and almost completely disappear by the time they are teenage. However, in rare cases, adults may require adenoidectomy if their adenoid glands get infected or inflamed, or there is a possibility that the patient has adenoid cancer.

What is the cost of adenoidectomy in Lucknow?

Adenoidectomy cost in Lucknow at Pristyn Care ranges from Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 50,000. This cost is arbitrary and depends on a variety of factors such as the doctor’s fees, hospitalization cost, medications required, post-operative consultation, etc.

Can adenoidectomy affect speech?

If the patient has airway obstruction to their adenoid glands, the removal of these glands can help improve their speech by providing ample airway and correcting breathing issues. However, adenoidectomy can also cause resonance speech problems that generally correct themselves after some time.

How long does it take to recover from adenoidectomy?

Patients are usually discharged within 24 hours of the surgery. Complete recovery usually takes about 1-2 weeks. In severe cases, this period may stretch up to 3 weeks.

What diet should I follow after an adenoidectomy?

You can resume a normal diet at home after the swelling has reduced. However, to improve recovery most doctors recommend a diet including soft, bland, and low-fat foods such as plain rice, broiled chicken, toast, and yogurt.

If it is too painful to swallow, you can start with a liquid diet, including juices, cold drinks, etc., or other soothing foods such as flavored ice pops and ice cream before starting solid foods.

How long does it take to complete an adenoidectomy?

Although adenoidectomy is a major surgery, it is completed within 30 minutes. You may need to stay in the recovery ward for a few hours while the anesthesia wears off and your doctor makes sure that there will be no further complications. Generally, the hospitalization does not last over 24 hours.

What is T&A procedure?

A T&A procedure, i.e., a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy procedure, is a minimally invasive surgery in which both treatments are provided simultaneously. If you are experiencing breathing or sleeping difficulties due to recurring throat infections, due to either adenoidectomy or tonsillectomy, or both, most doctors recommend getting both tonsils and adenoids removed at the same time, to prevent recurrence of the condition.

Is adenoidectomy painful?

Adenoidectomy is generally performed under general anesthesia and hence the surgery is not painful at all. There is a little pain and discomfort for a couple of days after the surgery; however it can be managed using medicines.

Why is fever common after an adenoidectomy?

Mild fever for about 3-4 days is very common after adenoidectomy surgery and is not a cause/sign of complications. It occurs due to bacteremia during the surgery and is the body’s inflammatory response to anesthesia and operative injury to the tissue.

Which people are contraindicated for adenoidectomy?

The most common contraindication for adenoidectomy is palatal insufficiency, i.e., cleft palate. As adenoids are present just behind the palate, their removal can worsen a pre-existing palatal problem, if there is any.

Can adenoidectomy cure snoring?

There are many different causes for snoring. If the cause of snoring in the patient is airway obstruction due to swollen adenoids, then adenoidectomy can cure snoring. If snoring is caused due to a septal deviation, then a septoplasty is necessary to eliminate snoring.

More Questions

What is post-operative care required after an adenoidectomy?

Once you are discharged from the hospital after adenoidectomy surgery, you should follow the given at-home care tips to improve recovery:

  • Do not perform any strenuous activities, including gym, swimming, running, etc., for at least one week after the surgery.
  • Eat only a bland/soft or liquid diet till it becomes easier to swallow. You should also avoid eating fried, spicy, or crunchy foods as they may exacerbate the incision while swallowing.
  • If you have a fever, then you should take mild fever-reducing medications, such as acetaminophen, paracetamol, etc.

You should visit your ENT specialist for a follow-up consultation 3-4 weeks after the surgery to make sure you are healing appropriately.

What are the complications associated with adenoidectomy?

Severe complications after adenoidectomy surgery are very rare, i.e., only about 2% of patients. Generally, mild complications such as fever, nausea, vomiting, etc., may occur for a few days and can be easily resolved through over-the-counter medications. The most common postoperative complications of adenoidectomy are:

  • Failure to resolve ear or sinus infections
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Nasal regurgitation
  • Permanent alteration of the voice
  • Infection
  • Failure to remove an airway obstruction
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Recurrence of the condition due to regrowth of the adenoids
  • Nasopharyngeal stenosis
  • Halitosis

Connect with your doctor immediately if any of these complications is not managed through medicines or last for over a week.
