Tonsillitis & Adenoiditis in Children

The first concern of the ear, nose, and throat specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone is to find the cause of your child’s tonsillitis or adenoiditis, also known as enlarged tonsils or adenoids. These infection-fighting tissues in the throat and behind the nose can become enlarged for many reasons and cause a wide range of symptoms. Our experts find the most effective ways to help your child feel better quickly and address the underlying cause, so that symptoms don’t return.

Our large network of pediatric specialists can address other medical issues that may be related to your child’s enlarged tonsils or adenoids, such as allergies, repeated respiratory infections, and obstructive sleep apnea.
