A Team of Experts

Preparing the Patient and Family for Surgery

Our commitment to exceptional care extends to the education of children and their families to help them to choose treatment options and prepare them for the surgery experience. Prior to and during the scheduled surgery, members of our Child Life Program work with children and families to ease anxiety using a variety of techniques.
