Yet, your pediatrician says the surgery is unnecessary. You end up with many questions about what—if anything—is wrong or needs intervention. Listen as Marie’s guest, seasoned researcher and physician Dr. Pamela Douglas insists that normal variations in newborn anatomy are being diagnosed as tongue ties or upper lip ties, resulting in unnecessary invasive surgery.
