Charting Pediatrics

Oct 25, 2022

Getting your tonsils out used to mean spending a few days in the hospital and getting ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, or T&A, is the second most common childhood surgery performed. It is important for pediatricians to have a detailed understanding of indication for referral, pre- and post-surgical management, and how this procedure has evolved over time. Today we are joined by an Otolaryngology expert to talk about tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy surgeries, when it is needed, and how this surgery is beneficial to patients.

Today I am happy to be speaking with Dr. Soham Roy.

Dr. Roy Soham is the chair of Pediatric Otolaryngology at Children’s Hospital Colorado and is a professor and vice chair at the university of Colorado school of medicine.
