Bloodless Tonsillectomy

Understanding Bloodless Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy

Bloodless tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy are surgical procedures that involve the removal of the tonsils and adenoids with minimal bleeding. This is achieved through the use of advanced surgical instruments and techniques that cauterize blood vessels while removing the tissues, significantly reducing blood loss and improving recovery times.

Indications for Surgery

  • Chronic Tonsillitis: Frequent and recurrent tonsil infections that don’t respond to medical treatment.
  • Sleep Apnea: Caused by enlarged tonsils and adenoids obstructing the airway.
  • Recurrent Ear Infections and Sinusitis: Often related to enlarged or Nishigandha’s Expertise in Bloodless Procedures
