A pediatric adenoidectomy is performed with the use of general anesthesia. This procedure lasts approximately 15 minutes, and patients will be ready to leave Northwest ENT Surgery Center 2 hours after their arrival.
Patients may experience mild pain and discomfort after the adenoidectomy, but this irritation should subside after 1 to 2 days. Immediately following the surgery, a normal level of activity may be resumed.
Following this procedure, out of town patients are cleared for next-day travel, and there is no need to schedule a follow-up appointment with a pediatrician or family physician.
