Adenoids trap germs that enter the body this causes it to swell as it tries to fight off an infection. Adenoid removal is also called adenoidectomy. The procedure is most often done in children.
The surgery is performed in an operating room under general anaesthesia. Generally the adenoids regrows in as many as 30% of the cases after removal and this increases when it is removed by blind curetting. The reason why I have stopped using blind curettage, there is a huge remnant of more than 40% left behind. The cut areas will heal on their own. A bad breath problem caused by scab formations after surgery, is normal. Snoring and congestion may persists at first after surgery due to swelling behind the nose however problems usually subside after about 2 weeks.
