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.

This office is one of the best, if not the best, medical offices I have personally dealt with. I'm sorry to say, you don't really know how rare that is! Many in the medical field have become jaded and forget what it is like to be the patient. Keep doing what you are doing. You have restored my faith in the medical profession, of which I am a member.
