Coblation intracapsular tonsillectomy

Together with my team at Evelina London Children's Hospital, I have just completed a study of our first 100 cases of minimally-invasive tonsillectomy using the Coblation® Intracapsular technique. This has produced excellent results, with very rapid recovery and minimal pain, and no significant problems or complications whatsoever.
