What is Laser Tonsillectomy ?
Tonsillectomy is a procedure to remove the infected tonsils. In laser tonsillectomy, Lasers are used in tonsillectomy to cut away the tonsils. Heat from the lasers seals the blood vessels and thus bleeding is prevented during a Laser Tonsillectomy.
Your tonsils are located at the back of your throat. Tonsils are an integral part of your body’s immune system, however removing them does not increase your risk of infection.
Laser Tonsillectomy (Laser Tonsil Ablation- LTA) is an advanced medical procedure to remove the tonsils or reduce the size of tonsils using state of art laser treatment.
Laser tonsillectomy is performed when regular medical therapy (antibiotics) fail to resolve the chronic tonsillar infections.
