The people behind

The tonsil operation website is developed through the steering group for tonsil surgery, National Registry for Otolaryngology Care, Sweden. The information on the Tonsil operation website is based on scientific studies about what children and adults want to know in connection with tonsil surgery as well as a national collection of informative material from all of the Otolaryngology departments in Sweden.

The website is produced by Ambient media (

Jo Rideout , actress, has lent us her voice for the stories about Elias and Moa who are to have their tonsils operated on.
