What you need to know for the Day of Surgery:
When you arrive at our center we ask that you check-in at the registration desk to verify personal, escort and insurance information.
After checking in at our center, the nurse will do a health interview and prepare you for surgery. An anesthesiologist will discuss your anesthesia with you and answer any questions. At the appropriate time you will be escorted to the operating room. During surgery your escort will stay in a waiting area and will rejoin you in the Phase II recovery area after your surgery. Parents may remain with their child in the preoperative area until it is time for surgery and may rejoin the child, in the postoperative area, as soon as it is appropriate. The surgeon will speak with your family immediately following surgery.
