SRINAGAR — Dr Danish Andrabi, a prominent ENT and Valley’s noted endoscopic skull base surgeon has acquired the first ‘Werewolf Coblation System’ in Jammu and Kashmir. This acquisition marks the beginning of a new chapter in the use of Coblation technology in ENT surgeries.

The new system is a state-of-the-art machine that allows a surgeon to perform surgeries related to tonsils and adenoids without any blood loss. The system also benefits patients with OSA (obstructive sleep apnoea) and snoring in carrying out surgeries to open up the airway in an effective manner.

It also finds application in the endoscopic removal of nose and brain tumours that are approachable from the nasal route. Such surgeries are performed by endoscopic skull base surgeons and give the advantage of not opening the skull, with no external cuts, scars, and stitches.

Dr Danish Andrabi has expertise in performing endoscopic skull base surgeries like the removal of pituitary tumours, CSF leaks, meningocele repair, orbit and optic nerve decompressions, and many advanced procedures that can be done through the nose. He is trained for the same at Bombay Hospital.
