If thought necessary,ENT surgeons usually like to wait until children are 2 years old before removing their tonsils. Your little son has more than qualified to have his tonsils removed and he will benefit from their removal. However the ENT may want to keep him on treatment for a while longer before removing his tonsils or may go ahead now if there is no other choice. Your paediatrician will send you to the best ENT specialist for your son's problem.
