Adenoidectomy for Ear & Sinus Infections
Infected adenoids can be treated with medication, but children with chronically infected adenoids may need surgery. An adenoidectomy is sometimes recommended for children with frequent ear or sinus infections, or if adenoids are causing breathing problems. Our board-certified surgeons at Alaska Center for Ear, Nose and Throat perform adenoidectomy surgery in Anchorage at ACENT’s state-of-the-art surgery center for patients from Wasilla, Palmer, and surrounding areas.
Your child’s doctor may also recommend removal of the tonsils at the same time since adenoiditis and tonsillitis go hand in hand. Surgery to remove the tonsils is called a tonsillectomy.
I just want to thank you so much for the care you provided my daughter during her surgery. Your acts of kindness and your big hearts will never be forgotten.Amanda mother of 13-year-old patient, after septoplasty & adenotonsillectomy
