Coblation can be an ideal technology for a variety of ear, nose and throat procedures. Some of the most commonly performed Coblation surgeries include:
Coblation technology has been successfully used by over two million board-certified ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons.
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.
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.
