Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
A technique pediatric otolaryngologists (ENTs) may use for an adenoidectomy is coblation. Coblation uses gentle radiofrequency energy with a natural salt solution to quickly and safely remove tonsils and adenoids. We also use microdebriders, cautery devices, and traditional sharp instruments when appropriate to remove adenoids effectively with improved recovery and lessened operative risk.
Most adenoidectomies are performed on an outpatient basis. For those children who are younger or very sick, the procedure will be performed and the child will be admitted to the hospital for observation. Parents can be assured that their children are getting the very best standard of care after these procedures.
For more information about an adenoidectomy please view our handout available in English and Spanish.
