Tonsil removal, or tonsillectomy, is the removal of the tonsils from the throat. In the past, tonsillectomy was used commonly to treat infection and inflammation of the tonsils. Today, we are more conservative when performing tonsil removal. The main reasons to have your tonsils removed are:
- You experience chronic sore throats
- You often have to take antibiotics to treat throat infections
- You suffer from obstructive sleep apnea
