What is Radio Frequency

Tonsil Reduction Surgery?

Radiofrequency (RF) tonsil reduction surgery is indicated for the treatment of chronic “tonsil stones” (tonsiliths) and enlarged tonsils. Radiofrequency tonsil reduction surgery is performed at the ENT of Georgia South in about 20 minutes, using only local anesthesia. It is appropriate for patients over the age of 16 and can be helpful for people seeking relief of tonsil stones or obstructing tonsils. Our advanced RF technology allows us to gently and precisely remove tissue leading to a fast and easier recovery.

How Does Radiofrequency

Tonsillar Reduction Work?

The procedure involves the use of radiofrequency technology to vaporize the outer surface of the tonsils, removing tonsillar pockets and significantly reducing tonsil size. Our advanced technology for radiofrequency tonsil reduction gently and precisely removes tissue, leading to a much quicker recovery than traditional tonsil surgery.

What are the Advantages of

Radio Frequency Tonsil Reduction?

  • Faster recovery than traditional tonsil surgery
  • Performed in the office instead of the operating room
  • No general anesthesia
  • Most patients can drive themselves home
  • Most patients can return to work the next day

If your tonsils are a problem contributing to snoring, sleep apnea or poor overall health, take the first step towards a better night’s sleep and a healthier lifestyle with a radiofrequency tonsillar reduction. Make an appointment at ENT of Georgia South for an evaluation today.
