Thermal Welding Tonsil Surgery
One of the most common health problems for children is swelling and inflammation of the tonsils.
Especially in the 5-15 age group, inflammation of the tonsils is observed in children who are in the community during the school period when bacteria are frequently encountered. Many viruses, such as adenoviruses, influenza, parainfluenza, cause inflammation in the tonsils. If this inflammation is not treated, it causes serious health problems. What is Tonsil? Tonsils are oval-shaped lymphoid tissues located on the right and left sides of the back of the throat. The tonsils are responsible for preventing the bacteria and germs that enter the mouth from entering the body. Tonsil surgery, also known as tonsillectomy, is one of the most frequently performed surgical operations in the world, which has been performed for thousands of years. Especially in childhood, tonsil surgeries are performed frequently to prevent potential diseases. In Which Situations Is Surgery Necessary? Although it is the body's defense mechanism, it is necessary to remove the tonsils, such as the tonsils growing more than normal and closing the respiratory tract, swelling of the tonsils 4-5 times a year, causing problems such as heart valve inflammation, respiratory distress, sleep apnea, sinusitis, otitis media and fever. What is Thermal Welding Tonsil Surgery? It is a new generation tonsil surgery performed through a device called Thermal Welding (UPS). This device uses heat energy and, thanks to its two separate probes, performs the contraction of the vessel with one and cutting with the other. The most widely known is the absence of bleeding during the operation. For this reason, it is known as bloodless and painless tonsil surgery.
What are the Advantages of Thermal Welding Tonsil Surgery?
As a new generation treatment method, with Thermal Welding, tonsils can be separated and removed without using a knife in a bloodless and painless way. In this case, the patient remains under less anesthesia and the recovery period is shorter compared to other traditional methods. It also has a positive effect on post-operative pain. As an area with intense blood circulation, there is a risk of making mistakes in the intervention in cases such as tonsils, bleeding during operations and the surrounding area not visible from blood. With the Thermal Welding method, the absence of blood during the operation eliminates the possibility of making mistakes during the intervention. Compared to other tonsil surgery methods, Thermal Welding tonsillectomy technique is accepted as one of the best and successful methods.
