Tonsillectomy surgery and Coblation®
Tonsil conditions are common in both adults and children. If you suffer with frequent bouts of tonsillitis, it can significantly affect your quality of life and result in frequent periods away from work. We can discuss the option of tonsillectomy surgery, if suitable.
Some patients are also aware of recurrent tonsil stones forming, and this can also significantly impact on quality of life; it can result in patients becoming self-conscious, and affect their confidence. Tonsillectomy surgery can also be considered to address this.
Miss Choudhury uses Coblation® technique to perform tonsillectomy surgery, which is more acceptable in terms of reduced pain and bleeding after surgery.
