What is Coblation®-Assisted Tonsillectomy?
Unlike traditional tonsillectomy procedures, which remove tonsils by cutting and/or burning, Coblation is advanced technology that combines gentle radiofrequency energy with natural saline - to quickly, and safely remove tonsils. Because traditional procedures use high levels of heat to remove the tonsils or to stop the bleeding that occurs when the tonsils are cut out, damage to surrounding healthy tissue is common. Coblation does not remove the tonsils by heating or burning, leaving the healthy tissue surrounding the tonsils intact.
The innovative approach of Coblation results in a fast and easy recovery for patients. Coblation has been used in nearly two million procedures by surgeons in ear, nose, and throat (ENT) and other areas of medical specialty.
