Adenoid is a soft tissue located at the back of the nose (nasopharynx). Heavy snoring and cessation of breathing in children could be a warning sign for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSAS). Removal of enlarged tonsils and adenoids provides dramatic relief and quality of life improvement for these patients.
Who needs the operation?
NOSE: nose block, snoring, sleep apnea, chronic or recurrent rhinosinusitis
