If your child has been scheduled for surgery, we want you to understand the process, and we also want your child to be as prepared for the experience as possible. We want to share with you what pediatric health care professionals have learned over the years on what you can do to prepare your child for surgery. This will also help you better understand many of the natural concerns all parents experience. You will learn about what part of surgery may be most stressful for your child, the various ways to prepare your child and his or her siblings for the upcoming surgery, and the possible emotional reactions your child may express.
We offer in-person tours to make it easier for you and for your child.
