RF (radiofrequency) therapy could replace traditional tonsillectomy :

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

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.
