Early Tonsillotome or Uvulatome

The best and most satisfactory method is to cut the tonsil off as close to the pillars of the fauces as possible.  This may be done by means of a pair of forceps and a bistoury--the operation being, however, rather tedious and bloody, but strangely not painful.  A better, quicker and more safe mode of operating is by means of the ‘tonsillotome.'  Later models were electrified to provide simultaneous cautery and thus, hemostasis.
