The doctors listed on this page have used COBLATION technology during tonsillectomy procedures, but may not use it in every operation. This list does not include all doctors who perform tonsillectomy procedures in your area. Smith & Nephew does not have any direct financial interest in the doctors or facilities listed.

No matter how statistically safe a procedure has proven to be, every surgery has risks. Post Tonsillectomy Hemorrhage (PTH) is a potentially serious complication that has been reported in literature for both adult and pediatric patients. It is reported to occur following use of COBLATION devices as well as following the use of other surgical devices and methods. Before making any surgical decision, you should speak with your doctor about any potential risks.
COBLATION wands are contraindicated for use in patients with cardiac pacemakers or other electronic device implants.
