With over 25 years of experience, Dr. James E. Freije, an otolayrngologist at Mount Nittany Physician Group in Pennsylvania, diagnoses and treats tonsillitis and other ailments affecting the ear, nose, and throat. Dr. James Freije is skilled in performing tonsillectomies, which have been found to increase adults’ quality of life.

Research has shown that tonsil removal in adults has made them healthier and happier in their social lives. According to the Marienhospital Gelsenkirchen at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany, adults who had received a tonsillectomy had significantly better scores when tested for quality of life seven years after the operation. It was found that the adults spent less time and money visiting the physician and taking medication, which helped to improve other areas of their lives. This study argues tonsil removal can actually make a person live a better life.
