Russian Tonsillectomy

So today while I was sitting in the side room of the OT, killing time and worrying like mad about many things including PG exam, my preparation (or rather the lack of it...why would I worry otherwise?) the sick AMO of Cooper etc Dr. Hindolkar, unit head of surgery walked in with his gang. And after the usual talking about PG exams, reservations, etc he started telling us all and Dr. Bhargava about people removing appendices via the stomach for people who want no scars on their abdomen. Or removal of thyroid by laparoscopic techniques and more such fascinating surgical developments. Dr. Samir Bhargava is a famous ENT surgeon who has also written a text book I used for ENT in final MBBS. So while Dr. Hindolkar was amazing us with these facts Dr. Bhargava chipped in,

"In Russia they remove the tonsils via the rectal approach........
............as you are not allowed to open your mouth in Russia!!!"

For the uninitaited....tonsils lie inside your mouth....open your mouth...stick out the tongue...aahhh there they are!

Erratica!!....it was Dr. Kamat who we were talking to....not Dr. Hindolkar. Since I have never seen both before I mistook one for the other
