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.
Please take a look at my new page, which includes quick reference materials for GPs and other medical professionals. These comprise the latest evidence-based guidelines and management strategies for common children's ENT problems.
I have now added an information page all about middle ear infections in children (acute otitis media), looking at the causes and treatments, all based on the latest evidence.
