Özet

Objective: This study was conducted to compare two different surgical methods; partial tonsil resection using the bipolar technique, tonsillotomy (TT), and total tonsillectomy (TE) (blunt dissection) for recurrent tonsillitis in children. The frequency of recurrent throat infections was determined during postoperative follow-up.
