Coblation® tonsillectomy is a safe and effective alternative to traditional tonsillectomy. Tonsillectomy with steel forceps (traditional) consumes more time than Coblation® tonsillectomy does. The reduction of intraoperative blood loss and operation time in Coblation® tonsillectomy is obvious. Studies show a significant difference in post-operative morbidity and complications between patients undergoing Coblation® tonsillectomy and those undergoing traditional technique.
It results in less blood loss and tissue damage, reduced post-surgical pain and no significant morbidities such as postoperative hemorrhage. It minimizes the post-operative recovery period, thus ensuring earlier return to normal activity without increasing post-operative complications.
