Took antibiotic for infection on tonsils. Advised for laser surgery. Will vocal cords be affected?

I have an infection on my tonsils. My doctor has put me on high doses of antibiotics as the infection resurfaced again. If this time the anti biotics don t work then my doctor has suggested that I remove my tonsils with the help of laser surgery . Will my vocal cords be affected? Or will there be any other harmful affects of the surgery?

Hi thanks for your question
Tonselectomy is treatment of choice for recurrent tonsilitis
Tonsulectomy by laser surgery is very safe and Laser beam will not affect your vocal cards.Vocal card are quite away from tonsil.
Hope this answers your question.
