How Long Does a Tonsillectomy Take?

Answer

A tonsillectomy operation takes forty minutes. The operation is performed through the mouth and there are usually no stitches in the throat. However, after the operation, there is always a small raw patch, on each side of the throat where the tonsils are removed which takes ten to fourteen days to heal.
