Adenoid

Adenoid surgery (adenoidectomy) is performed under general anesthesia, in an operating room, through a quick and simple procedure that removes the adenoid by mouth

Amygdala

Tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of the palatine tonsils, that is, it is surgery to remove or remove the tonsils. The operation can be performed in two ways: total tonsillectomy, which consists of the total removal of the tonsil, or partial tonsillectomy, which consists of the partial removal of the tonsil.

Deviated Septum

Septoplasty or septal deviation surgery (or operation) aims at the surgical correction of the nasal septum deviation. The purpose of surgery is to correct the existing deviation and thus increase the permeability of the nasal passages and consequently improve the quality of life of patients.

Ear Drain

Tympanotomy is a surgical procedure that involves placing a ventilation tube (drain or “tube”) in the tympanic membrane, aiming to provide adequate ventilation in the middle ear. Tympanotomy is performed through the ear canal itself (external auditory canal) with the patient under general anesthesia. Using a microscope, the surgeon makes a small hole in the tympanic membrane and then “fits” the vent tube into this space. Tympanotomy can be combined with other procedures such as surgery to remove tonsils and adenoids (Adenotonsillectomy). The surgery lasts an average of one hour and the patient is discharged on the same day.

Turbinectomy

Turbinectomy or turbineplasty is surgery performed on the nose. Your goal is to improve the patient's breathing. The technique consists of removing part of the structure of the nasal turbinates (bones and cartilage) from the cavity. These shells can enlarge and cause an obstruction that can impair breathing. The nasal turbinates are responsible for filtering, humidifying and heating the air that goes to the lungs. Its malfunction mainly causes allergic rhinitis. With its partial or total removal, the symptoms of the disease are significantly reduced. Turbinectomy removes part or all of these shells, opening space for air circulation and facilitating breathing. As it is considered an exploratory surgery, the doctor will have to make some decisions, without the patient's knowledge, during the procedure. The surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia and lasts approximately half an hour. The patient may be hospitalized for one or two days after the procedure. Sometimes it is necessary to put a plug inside the nose to prevent bleeding. This tampon is removed within three days after the operation. The nose has three shells. Once removed, the nasal shells do not grow back.
