The tonsils are located on each side of the back wall of the throat, just above and behind the tongue. The adenoids are found above and behind the roof of the mouth – where the nose and mouth join.
The tongue is one of the most important muscles for speech and swallowing. For this reason having tongue-tie can lead to eating or speech problems, which may be serious in some individuals.
Microlaryngoscopy does not usually require an overnight stay in the hospital. It is generally performed under general anesthesia (the patient is asleep during the procedure) with the patient lying on the back.
When we eat something, the food reaches the stomach by traveling down a muscular tube called the esophagus.
