Revolutionize your health with a Tonsillectomy, offering a lasting solution to recurrent throat infections and sleep disturbances.


What is Tonsillectomy?

Tonsillectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the tonsils and is recommended for two major reasons. The first is recurrent tonsil infections, or strep throat, particularly for individuals experiencing more than three infections per year. Removing the tonsils reduces the occurrence of these infections, leading to fewer days lost to illness and more quality time for your life. 

Another reason for a tonsillectomy is the presence of overly large tonsils that obstruct breathing, especially during sleep. This condition can escalate to snoring and, more critically, obstructive sleep apnea, which fragments sleep and prevents deep restorative sleep cycles. Sleep apnea causes daytime fatigue, lack of concentration, and moodiness, with long-term risks including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. 

Dr. Nima, leveraging the latest surgical techniques, specializes in tonsillectomy to enhance breathing, improve sleep quality, and elevate your overall health and well-being.

Dr. Nima and his staff were so warm and caring during my time at the surgery center. Each if them took time to answer any questions that I had, which was so appreciated right before surgery! I highly recommend Dr. Nima and his amazing team. He is truly an artist, and you will be in good hands!


Dr. Nima and his team are truly the best of the best! The facility is gorgeous, the staff are incredibly professional and knowledgeable, and the entire experience with whole team has been seamless (shoutout to Jaclyn as the best nurse and Monica/Tracy as well). I can’t recommend Eos Wellness enough, as my experience with them has been a dream.


I had the most seamless "VIP" experience! The surgery center is pristine and beautiful with an amazing view of Beverly Hills and the Hollywood Hills from the actual operating room. I was nervous leading up to my surgery but felt very comfortable once I arrived at the surgery center. Dr. Nima's amazing and caring staff were all extremely attentive. I definitely feel like I received top-notch care in a top-notch facility!


Benefits of Tonsillectomy

Are you a candidate for Tonsillectomy?

The Tonsillectomy Process


Pre-Surgical Consultation

We begin with a thorough consultation with Dr. Nima, who will evaluate your symptoms, medical history, and discuss the benefits and expectations of the tonsillectomy procedure.


Surgery Preparation

The procedure is done as an outpatient and you get to go home the same day. The surgery is done under anesthesia while you are asleep for your comfort and safety. The surgery is performed through the mouth so that there are no external incisions. It takes about 20 minutes to complete. Patients with large tonsils will notice an immediate improvement in their breathing.


Surgical Procedure and Recovery

The main drawback of tonsillectomy is controlling the discomfort. You will be given adequate medication to control this. You will be limited to a soft food diet for two weeks to prevent complications after surgery. Dr. Nima will see you three weeks after surgery to evaluate the area. If you have any questions or concerns, you are free to call our office and come in for a visit at any time.


Is a tonsillectomy painful?

Patients can expect some pain after the surgery, which is manageable with prescribed pain relief methods. Dr. Nima and his team will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure comfort during the recovery phase.

How long is the recovery period after a tonsillectomy?

Recovery typically takes about 10 to 14 days, with patients usually able to return to normal activities within 2 weeks, following specific post-operative care instructions to manage pain and promote healing.
