Day of Surgery
Surgeries are performed on the first floor of the Acute Care Pavilion.
You and your child will be checked in by the preoperative room nurse. Your nurse will review your child’s medical history, have you sign the informed consent allowing your surgeon to perform surgery and get your child dressed and ready for surgery. While in the preoperative area, you will get a chance to meet your anesthesiologist and ask him questions. Your surgeon will also meet you there and answer any last questions before proceeding with surgery.
Your child will then be taken to the operating room by the OR nurse. You will be guided to wait either in a consultation room or in the lobby during the surgery. After the surgery is complete, your surgeon will come talk to you to discuss the procedure and how to take care of your child during the recovery.
