Any advice? What surgery is it where they use scissors down your throat to remove throat or a sore, strep throat?

In brief: Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy is not often performed for frequent " strep throat, " as in the past.
The procedure is more often done for obstructive sleep apnea in recent years.
