Ear, nose and throat infections are among the most commonly found bacterial diseases. At SK Hospital, we strive to create an ENT specialty for providing medical treatment and diagnosis facilities for ear, nose, and throat (ENT) related diseases and disorders. Our multi-specialty hospital is equipped with advanced diagnosis and surgical instruments, specialized for ENT care and treatment.
Adenoids are small lumps of tissues in the back of the throat that help fight ear, nose and throat infections in younger children. After 3 years of age, they are no longer needed. The adenoids get infected and swell up due to cold or throat infection, which blocks the nose and results in breathing disorders, especially when asleep. This causes various sleep problems, such as, sleep apnoea or snoring.
Adenoidectomy is the surgical removal of the adenoids, which helps get rid of the symptoms permanently, while antibiotics provide temporary relief and cannot be used for long-term treatment.
