What is it?
Coblation is an advanced technology that quickly and effectively removes and shrinks soft palate tissue and bulky tissue of the tongue base using gentle radio frequency energy and natural saline. Coblation is not a heat-driven process. As a result, surrounding healthy tissue is preserved allowing for a fast and easy recovery.
The proven, patented Coblation process has been used successfully in over two million procedures by surgeons in ear, nose and throat (ENT) and other areas of medicine.
Coblation-assisted soft palate treatment is a medical innovation that can bring your snoring under control with a simple, quick procedure. This revolutionary treatment:
Prof Timms is a pioneer of Coblation surgery and teaches the technique to surgeons around the world.
- Results in noticeable snoring improvement within 1-4 weeks
- Palate surgery can be performed in your doctor’s office, under local anaesthesia or if preferred under a short general anaesthetic
- Tongue base surgery requires a short general anaesthetic
- The procedure often takes less than ten to fifteen minutes. (Patients typically return home shortly after the procedure)
