What is tonsil, adenoid, and nasal air passage removal with ear tube insertion?

Tonsil, adenoid, and nasal air passage removal with ear tube insertion is a surgical procedure during which several ENT procedures are performed at one time. These surgeries include:

  • Tonsillectomy: removal of the tonsils
  • Adenoidectomy: removal of the adenoids
  • Turbinate surgery: improving nasal airflow by reducing the size of the nasal turbinates
  • Myringotomy: ear tube insertion

These procedures may be required for chronic or recurrent throat infections, snoring or sleep apnea, obstructed breathing patterns, sinus infection, or ear infections.
