We are closed Monday oct 9 for thanksgiving. We reopen Tuesday wishing everyone a happy thanksgiving with their families.
In the old days ( or at least when I was young 🙂 ), tonsillectomy was a common procedure. The current thinking is that removing tonsils is indicated in only a few situations. Most children do not need their tonsils out and we do not remove them because ” they are big”, or ” the child is always sick with fever”, or the child ” always gets a sore throat”. In the case of strep throat, we look for a carrier in the family. This is done by swabbing everyone when they are well for a while.
A recent study published in Pediatrics ( a respected Paediatric journal), showed that long term, tonsillectomy did not help children with recurrent strep or sore throats. This is what we have been trying to explain to parents, but here is a study that reinforces this:
Pediatrics:February 2017, VOLUME 139 / ISSUE 2
There are currently over 20 recent cases of mumps and 4 cases of measles reported in the Toronto area.
Both of these diseases are contagious viruses that are preventable by vaccination. Typically, children get vaccinated against these illnesses between 12 and 15 months of age and again between 4 and 6 years of age. Children less than 12 months old are not eligible to receive this vaccine and, as such, they are particularly vulnerable to these illnesses.

Measles is highly contagious. 90% of unimmunized people exposed to the measles virus will become infected. If you believe that your child has the measles or has been exposed to the measles, please contact the office prior to coming in so that we can prevent any potential spread of the disease.
