Winneshiek Medical Center offers a minimally invasive option to patients facing tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies (removal of tonsils or adenoids – lymphoid tissue located in the back of the throat).
William Remington, M.D., Mayo Clinic Health System otorhinolaryngologist (ear, nose, throat, head and neck surgeon) offers Coblation Tonsillectomy at Winneshiek Medical Center. Coblation Tonsillectomy is a gentle alternative to traditional surgical methods, offering a rapid recovery time and minimal pain. Most patients can even resume normal diet and activities within a few days, as opposed to the possible two-week recovery time using traditional removal methods. Dr. Remington says, “Coblation Tonsillectomy allows many patients to leave after surgery with less pain and less need for narcotic pain medication. No one wants to see a four-year old in pain, and Coblation Tonsillectomy gives us that option.”
