Preoperative Management

  1. Blood Transfusions in Children

    Detailed information on blood transfusions and the child having surgery

  2. Hospital Visit / Preoperative Clinic

    Touring the hospital before surgery can help your child see the sights, sounds, and events he or she will experience the day of surgery. It is a non-threatening, often reassuring, way to learn about the hospital.

  3. Informed Consent

    You will be asked to sign an informed consent form which states in detail that you understand the risks and benefits of your child's surgery.

  4. Latex Allergy

    Symptoms of latex allergy include watery or itchy eyes, wheezing, hives, flushing or a skin rash, itching, or swelling.

  5. Preoperative Visit with the Surgeon

    This is the time to ask questions: What are the expected results? What are the possible risks and complications? How long will the surgery take?
