Podcast: Pediatric Thoracic Surgery

In this episode of Kids Health Cast, Shaun Steigman, M.D. and Stephen Oh, M.D. discuss pediatric thoracic surgery. They share what families can expect when coming in for surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine and how to prepare their child for this part of their treatment journey. The doctors help answer the most common questions parent have, such as: how long is a typical hospital stay for a child after surgery, what happens after a child has been discharged post-surgery, and what a family can expect with follow-up care.

Every parent wants what’s best for their children — but in the age of the internet, it can be difficult to navigate what is actually fact-based or pure speculation.

Cut through the noise with Kids Health Cast, featuring Weill Cornell Medicine’s expert physicians and researchers discussing a wide range of health topics, providing information on the latest medical science. Finally, a podcast to help you make informed choices for your family’s health and wellness.
