Adenoidectomy Surgery

Intro image

What is an

Adenoidectomy?

Adenoidectomy is the surgical removal of the adenoid tissue behind the nose. Along with the tonsils, enlarged adenoids can be a major contributor to airway obstruction leading to snoring and sleep apnea (primarily for children). Removing the adenoids can also provide relief for patients with chronically inflamed adenoids (adenoiditis), nasal congestion and ear pain.

How does an

Adenoidectomy work?

Adenoidectomy surgery is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgery center or hospital. It involves the surgeon carefully removing the adenoids from behind the nose. Sometimes, it is performed in conjunction with tonsil removal in a procedure called adenotonsillectomy.

COVID-19 Update

The doctors and staff at ENT of Georgia South are working hard to continue to provide excellent care while keeping our patients safe.

We have measures in place to simplify check in and have patients fill our paper work in the exam room or even in their own vehicle to reduce the number of patients in our waiting rooms. You can even fill at home online before your appointment.

We maintain diligent disinfectant techniques, and screen patients in advance showing signs and symptoms of viral illness that require they not be seen in the office. We also screen our employees daily although no one has developed Covid-19.
Ultimately if you don't feel comfortable coming in to our office, we are offering virtual appointments using video from your mobile device, tablet, or computer.

Please call our office and be assured we are committed to help you any way we can.

Our physician office hours, audiology, and allergy departments all remain open in Fayetteville and Stockbridge Mon-Fri 8am - 4:30pm. The Buckhead location will be open for clinic on Tuesdays temporarily.
