Throat Treatments



Microscopic Laryngeal Surgery


Microlaryngeal surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to biopsy or remove abnormal growths, such as granulomas or benign cysts, in the larynx. It is usually performed to correct voice disorders or to diagnose or treat laryngeal cancer. The majority of microscopic voice surgery procedures, though performed on an outpatient basis, are performed under general anesthesia to minimize the danger of gagging or breathing problems. Patients who undergo microlaryngeal surgery typically recover more quickly than patients who undergo more traditional laryngeal surgery. They also have a superior outcome in terms of voice quality.



Tonsillectomy


Tonsillectomy (ton-sih-LEK-tuh-me) is the surgical removal of the tonsils, two oval-shaped pads of tissue at the back of the throat — one tonsil on each side. A tonsillectomy was once a common procedure to treat infection and inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis). Today, a tonsillectomy is usually performed for sleep-disordered breathing but may still be a treatment when tonsillitis occurs frequently or doesn't respond to other treatments. A tonsillectomy may also be necessary to treat breathing and other problems related to enlarged tonsils and to treat rare diseases of the tonsils.



Styloid Process Excision


Surgery is done under GA through transoral route After doing Tonsillectomy, Superior Constricter Muscle is separated so that tip of Styloid Process comes into view. Periosteum is separated after putting ethmoidal curette and all soft tissue around the Styloid Process is retracted. Finally the Styloid is removed through bone nibbler
