Planning for surgery

We recognize how much thought and preparation goes into planning for surgery. To help you get ready a team of parents, teens and staff created and compiled resources to answer your questions and provide information about the surgery experience.

At Children’s we know everyone’s experience is individual and unique. We are committed to working as a team to meet you and your family’s needs.

Attend a pre-surgery walking tour

The pre-surgery program walking tour at each site is the best way to learn about having surgery at Children’s. Our pre-surgery programs are designed for patients, parents, and other family members.
