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?
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.
Latex Allergy
Symptoms of latex allergy include watery or itchy eyes, wheezing, hives, flushing or a skin rash, itching, or swelling.
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.
Blood Transfusions in Children
If your child's doctor decides that your child needs blood or blood products, he or she will explain the reasons for the transfusion.
