The data were analyzed through SPSS version 16 using Chi-square, Mann-Whitney, and Pearson correlation. Results: Mann-Whitney test showed that the two methods revealed statistically significant differences between the duration of the surgical procedure (p=0.000), postoperative pain (p=0.000) and the amount of intra operative bleeding (p=0.000). However, the results did not show any statistically significant difference between the costs of treatment (p=0.633), stay in hospital (p=1.000), postoperative bleeding (p=1.000) and medication prescription (p=0.317) There were. Conclusion: The study results show that the tonsil twisting method had tonsil bleeding with 1/ 9 to more than electrocautery method and Pain in electrocautery method more than tonsil twisting method.
