Tonsillectomy is a procedure in which the tonsils (groups of lymphoid tissue) are removed from the back of the throat. This surgery is usually performed on patients that suffer from tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils) or breathing problems during sleep. In this procedure, the patient is usually placed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will remove the tonsils using one of a variety of methods that can include radiofrequency ablation, harmonic scalpel, traditional scalpel, laser, or any other technique that will remove the tonsils in the most appropriate manner possible. This procedure is sometimes performed jointly with removal of the adenoids.
