A tonsillectomy was a medical procedure in which a patient's tonsils were removed.

Leonard McCoy had undergone this procedure sometime prior to 2267, but his tonsils grew back as a side effect of the Omicron spores. (TOS: "This Side of Paradise")

Some used this term as a metaphor for flirtatious kissing. In 2378, while playing the [[Emergency Medical Holographic program|EMH] in the holographic novel Photons Be Free, B'Elanna Torres, accused Marseilles of getting her out of sickbay just so he could give her patient a tonsillectomy. (VOY: "Author, Author")
