Scientists Publish Research on Breakthrough Treatment for Tonsil Stones

Title sounds very exciting... even more so when I realized it was talking about the research paper that I co-authored with fellow ENT colleague Dr. Richard Thrasher on a new way of addressing tonsil stones.

I never really considered myself a "scientist,"but glad to hear that at least somebody considers me one!

This article apparently came out on MedicalXpress, a medical news website. It has also been picked up in a few other channels as listed under sources.
