Pediatrician 's  Response
if your child is having a recurrent ear infection which required meringomotomy and tubing of ear drum , then adenoidectomy is helpful in that case in preventing the recurrence of ear infections,
surgery is done to remove it and some surgeons use laser to help them through the procedure , that means the procedure includes both cutting by blades and using a laser beam .
I hope this clarify .
