Background: Tonsillectomy is one of the most commonly performed surgical operations in children in the recent years. It is mainly done for chronic tonsillitis and obstructive symptoms. Aims & Objectives: To compare activity in coblation and dissection cold tonsillectomy. Methods: This is a prospective study done at UMBAL Burgas for a period of one and a half years from March 2019 to September 2020. Out of the 54 patients, 28 underwent coblation tonsillectomy and 24 underwent conventional dissection tonsillectomy. Results: However, average time taken to return to normal activity among coblation was 6.8 days and dissection was 7.6 days. Conclusion: Coblation tonsillectomy significantly reduces the operation time, intraoperative blood loss, immediate postoperative pain, and patient returns early to regular routine, but with a higher cost.
