Q.

remove tonsils

Morning doc

Just wanted to know, at what age is it appropriate to have baby' s tonsils removed. There haven' t been any problems - she had tonsilitis once before, but otherwise no problem. Just want them removed before they cause problems.

Thanx

There is absolutely no reason for your child to have her tonsils removed.
