If you think that your child will need surgery or your primary care doctor has referred your child to pediatric and adolescent gynecology for surgery, you will first schedule a preoperative evaluation appointment with a pediatric and adoloescent gynecologist at Children’s.
Before a surgery is scheduled, a gynecologist must see and evaluate your child to determine whether surgery is appropriate and the best procedure for care.
Once the gynecologist has examined your daughter, she will explain the surgical procedure and the risks and benefits of surgery.
If you decide to proceed with the surgery, the gynecology surgery scheduler will arrange a future surgery time with you. Usually, surgery is not scheduled the same day as the first doctor's appointment.
Once you have been given a surgery date, you may call the surgery scheduler if you have any questions or if you need to change the date.
