Adenoidectomy involves the removal of your adenoids through a surgery procedure.


Adenoids are small lumps of tissue above the roof of our mouth at the back of the nose.  They are part of our immune system and helps fight infection, protecting the body from bacteria and viruses.  Adenoids start to grow when we are a baby and peak in size at around age three to five.  In the following few years they start to shrink and a barely visible by our teenage years, disappearing completely by adulthood when they are no longer needed. 


Adenoids sometimes become swollen or enlarged as a result of an infection or an allergic reaction.  Usually this swelling does not need to be treated and only causes mild discomfort.  However, for some children, it can cause severe discomfort and interfere with their daily life.


An adenoidectomy to surgically remove the adenoids may be recommended for your child if: 


  • They have become enlarged and swollen and this is causing severe discomfort 
  • Your child is suffering from breathing problems caused by their adenoids
  • Your child is having difficulty sleeping due to their adenoids
  • Your child’s adenoids are related to recurrent or persistent problems with the ears


At One Healthcare we can book you in to see a specialist surgeon, usually within 48 hours, for an initial consultation.  Gallbladder removal is available at One Ashford Hospital in Kent and One Hatfield Hospital in Hertfordshire.
