Hear From Our Patients

At Smith & Nephew, we are committed to helping improve the lives of people in more than 100 countries around the globe. That’s why we’re bringing COBLATION technology to patients for tonsillectomies. Unlike traditional tonsillectomy procedures, which burn tissue at high temperatures, COBLATION technology offers a more gentle alternative.1,2,3

See what some of our patients have to say about their experience with tonsillectomies.

Leslie’s Story

After two sets of ear tubes didn’t relieve her daughters constant ear infections, their ENT recommend an adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy. After the surgery her daughter was back to being herself. “I can’t imagine what life would be like without the surgery,” Leslie says. Watch her story below.

Lisa’s Story

Lisa’s four-year-old son started to snore at night, had restless sleep, woke up gasping for air, was extremely tired in the morning, and was experiencing hearing loss. After seeing an ENT, an adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy was recommended. “He was back in school on Monday,” Lisa says, “only two days after surgery.” Watch her story below.
