Dr.K.O.Paulose FRCS DLO, Consultant ENT Surgeon, Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum, Kerala, India.
Coblation is not a heat-driven process; therefore it does not char or burn healthy tissue like conventional electro surgery and laser surgery.
Coblation is derived from the term “controlled ablation” It combines radiofrequency energy with a natural saline solution to gently and precisely remove tissue leading to a fast and easier recovery.
This advanced surgical technique results in reduced pain, less bleeding and faster recovery for patients. Unlike the traditional method, Coblation technology literally â€˜vaporizes\’ the tissues. As there\’s no cutting or heat involved, there\’s no charring or burning of healthy tissue, which is great news for patients.
Coblation tonsillectomy in Children utilizes this unique, low-temperature technology that has been clinically shown to speed a child\’s return to normal activity and diet, and decrease pain, post-surgical narcotics use and the chance of re-bleeding when compared to older, heat-based technologies such as electrocautery or traditional tonsillectomy. By combining radiofrequency energy with a saline solution, Coblation is able to gently and precisely remove tonsils without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
