Ideal ENT Procedures for the Technology

Coblation can be an ideal technology for a variety of ear, nose, and throat procedures. Some of the most commonly performed Coblation surgeries include:

  • Tonsillectomy
  • Adenoidectomy
  • Lesion debulking
  • Turbinate reduction
  • Laryngeal polypectomy
  • Sinus and soft palate surgery

Fun Fact: Coblation technology has been successfully used by over two million board-certified ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgeons.

What Sets Coblation Apart From Other Surgical Techniques?

Lasers, electrosurgical devices, and other radiofrequency-based surgical products tend to be very imprecise ways to cut through tissue. In this way, Coblation stands out in the crowd.

The technology removes tissue at relatively low temperatures using a controlled and stable plasma field. This allows for the effective removal of problematic tissue while ensuring that the surrounding structures are preserved and unharmed.

Benefits: Quicker and Safer ENT Procedures

  • Minimal discomfort
  • Reduced postoperative pain
  • Faster return to daily activities
  • Fewer secondary infections
  • Shorter recovery period

The Procedure: What to Expect

Coblation ENT procedures are typically performed on an outpatient basis. If the patient is a child, general anesthesia will usually be used. If the patient is an adult, many Coblation surgeries (such as turbinate reduction and nasal surgery) can be done as in-office procedures. Depending on the complexity of your condition, the entire process can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.
