ENT Operations for Children

ENT Operations for Children

Majority of the ENT operations I do in my field, my patients are children. Most common operation in ENT field for both adults and children is tonsillectomy. For children, adenoidectomy operation is added to this procedure almost all the time. Recently, a third procedure called ear tube (ventilation tube) is also being added. Three operations at the same time may sound a bit too much to parents, but the truth is this combination is very beneficial for the well-being of the child. Tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, ear tube and neck cyst operations (with Grommet) are very common surgical ENT interventions for children.
