Most choosing painful traditional tonsillectomy! Laser undesirable?

I've been thinking about a tonsillectomy for various reasons, and I'm assuming that the painful recovery stories I've been reading about are from the traditional tonsillectomies. I'm also assuming that other methods have been explored since the traditional means supposedly has a longer and more difficult recovery period. If any of you researched other means before going through with the traditional method, then could you tell me why you chose it. Are the internet descriptions of the laser recovery misstated? I'm all for avoiding as much pain as possible, and I also don't want to miss much work. Thanks for any input.
