Using radiofrequency energy to shrink enlarged tonsils could help patients avoid the discomfort, bleeding or lengthy hospital stay associated with traditional radical tonsillectomy. Tonsillar coblation, which uses a radio-frequency probe to administer mild heat to several locations in the tonsils, can be performed within a few minutes in the doctor's office, with either a local anaesthetic or mild sedation. Patients can resume their normal activity immediately following the procedure, which costs around $1,900, said the technique's pioneer, Mansoor Madani of the Center for Corrective Surgery in Philadelphia.
