New Video on Tonsil Cryptolysis to Address Tonsil Stones

A new video has been uploaded describing a minimally invasive technique to address tonsil stones called tonsil cryptolysis.

This technique accomplishes the same thing as laser cryptolysis but at lower cost and increased safety. Just like laser cryptolysis, this procedure can be done awake without any sedation using only local anesthesia (the caveat being that the patient must have minimal/no gag reflex with easy visualization of the tonsils).

Watch the video below or on YouTube. Read more about this procedure here.
