Are there special considerations for a child having surgery?

We realize that surgery can be frightening for you and your child. The pre-operative call with the facility nurse is a great time to arrange a tour of the facility to ease any fears you both may be experiencing. If your child would like to have a stuffed animal or security blanket for added comfort, feel free to bring these items on the day of surgery.  In the case of young children having surgery, it is best to have someone along with the driver to help care for the child on the trip home.  If you experience any health changes between your most recent visit with your physician and the date of surgery, notify your physician immediately.  Please report even minor changes, such as an elevated temperature, cough or cold.  If you cannot reach your physician, please call the facility.
