COVID-19 info: Surgeries are being scheduled at our surgery centers in Minneapolis and St. Paul. We are taking precautions to keep your family safe. Learn more about what to expect for surgery »
To help you and your family prepare for surgery, we’ve compiled Children’s Minnesota resources specific to parents, teens and kids.
It’s important to help your child understand what to expect for surgery. You know your child best, so we developed My Surgery Story which you can customize to your child’s individual needs. Add your own photos and captions, or use the story as it is. The story can also be a meaningful way to help your child process the experience after surgery.
My Surgery Story is a Google Slides document. You can print or download the document as an editable PowerPoint, or you can edit the document in Google Slides if you have a Google account (opens in new window). Once you are logged in, you can save a copy of the document to your own account and edit that copy.
