Tonsillectomy information and locations in Mexico

A tonsillectomy is the surgical removal of both tonsils from the back of the throat. This surgery is performed to treat problems related to the tonsils or obstructive sleep apnea.
During the procedure, the surgeon can cut and remove all of the tonsils or just remove the affected tonsil tissue and leave a small layer to protect the throat muscle. A tonsillectomy will eliminate the problems caused by the tonsils including recurrent and chronic sore throats, mouth breathing and snoring, mild sleep apnea, tonsil stones, and chronic bad breath.
