Joacim Stalfors

Hello!

My name is Joacim Stalfors. I am a doctor and have performed surgery to remove tonsils on quite a few children. Almost everyone who is operated on has no symptoms after the operation. In connection with the operation, sometimes problems occur with bleeding, pain etc. In order to reduce these problems, my colleagues and I have started a quality register called the Tonsil Operation Register.

With the aid of the Tonsil Operation Register, we have found out how we must operate in order to minimise the risk of bleeding. Now we are in the process of sharing this knowledge. Here you can read about how the Tonsil Operation Register works and how the care is improved.
