Pediatric surgery and tours
In addition to offering pediatric surgical procedures, we also want to ensure your little ones feel as comfortable as possible prior to their surgery. We offer pediatric tours for kids twice per month. This allows children the opportunity to tour the operating room and watch an educational video about the entire surgical experience to help alleviate their fears of surgery.
After any pediatric surgical procedure, families are able to join their children immediately after they return from the operating room.
Same-day surgery program
We now offer a variety of surgical procedures that are performed same-day, without the need for an overnight hospital stay. For most people, minimally invasive procedures and surgeries mean a speedier recovery, less scarring and fewer complications than traditional surgery.
Preparing for surgery
Prior to the procedure, your surgical team will provide you with information and preoperative instructions for the best possible surgical outcomes.
Immediately after surgery and depending on the stage of recovery, patients will be brought to a recovery room or day surgery room. Specialized post anesthesia care unit nurses monitor patients when they awake from anesthesia to ensure they are stable and as comfortable as possible.
Our goal is to ensure optimal patient care and a speedy recovery.
