How Can I Prepare My Child for Surgery?
No matter the surgery, preparing for an approaching surgery can be stressful and frightening for you and especially your child. But with some age-appropriate teaching, reassurances, and support--that fear and stress can evaporate.
Same-Day Pediatric Surgery
Our nationally recognized surgeons and staff provide appointments to diagnose and treat pediatric surgical conditions on the same day. You'll be able to meet with one of our specialists for a consultation in the morning and have your child's procedure completed that same afternoon.
