Understanding Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils, which are two small glands located at the back of the throat. Tonsils play a role in the immune system, but they can sometimes become infected or enlarged, leading to recurrent sore throats, difficulty swallowing, and other issues. Tonsillectomy is often recommended when these problems are severe or persistent and significantly impact a patient’s quality of life.

Diagnosis and Testing
At Neo TrueNorth, we offer comprehensive diagnostic assessments to determine if tonsillectomy is the right course of action for you. Our diagnostic services include:

  • Physical Examination: A thorough examination of the throat and surrounding structures to assess the size and condition of the tonsils, as well as to evaluate any associated symptoms and potential risk factors.

  • Imaging Studies: In some cases, imaging studies such as CT scans or MRI scans may be recommended to get a detailed view of the tonsils and surrounding tissues, especially if there are concerns about the extent of infection or other complications.


  • Tonsil Function Tests: These tests may involve evaluating the function of the tonsils in the immune system and assessing their role in protecting against infections.
