A Good News for My Snoring Sleep Apnea Patients
Yes finally, Coblator® Surgery is scheduled to start on 23rd Saturday June 2012 in Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum, Kerala, South India.
I have been using Coblator in my previous assignment in a corporate Hospital in the city. Being a charitable Mission Hospital, there were constraints from the management to acquire this expensive equipment, so I was managing last 18 months with Co2 Laser for Snoring and OSA related surgery and did approximately 200 cases of Snoring and OSA cases in this period.
My Sincere thanks goes to Fr.Andrews Kosmos MBA, the MD of the Hospital, and the management of the Jubilee Hospital for taking initiative to bring this latest technology to this small charitable mission hospital, so my service and experience in this technology can benefit the poor and needy who cannot afford the benefits of this type of modern technology which is only available in rich corporate set ups.
My sincere thanks go to Rev Dr.Soosaipakyam the Arch Bishop of Trivandrum, whose prayers and blessing motivated me to go forward with strength of the Holy Spirit in healing my ministry as a witness to Jesus.
Coblation Surgery is scheduled to start at 8:30am on 23 June 2012, In Jubilee Hospital, Trivandrum. Followed by blessing by Fr Andrews, MD of the hospital, there will be demo and small work shop for interested doctors and for the staff.
The Arthrocare Team will be organizing the event and they would like to conduct further CME, multimedia presentations, and workshops for doctors and medical professionals interested in the management of Sleep Disorder Breathing.
I also thank Gopan and Prabhath from the Arthrocare Team for their support and guidance.
What Is Coblation Surgery?
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 ‘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.
What Type of Surgeries can be done?
As I do lot of surgery for Snoring and Sleep Apnea , It is very good instrument to perform Coblator Assisted Uvuolplasty (CAUP), Base of Tongue Reduction (BOT), Lingual Tonsillectomy, Coblator reduction of turbinates in the Nose etc.
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.
