Intracapsular (shave) partial tonsillectomy


Partial (shave) or intracapsular tonsillectomy has a much quicker recovery.  I have performed over 1000 operations in the last 10 years. Patients operated on the Wednesday now go back to school on the mext Monday.  The rate of postoperative bleeding is lower but a small number may need revision surgery for regrowth.  3/400 cases in my series needed revision surgery.
