Children Surgery Information

A parent/legal guardian must accompany minors and remain at the surgery center throughout the visit. Your child may be unsteady after sedation/anesthesia. Please plan to supervise all activities for 24 hours following their surgery. Specific activity limitations will be given to you at discharge. Parents are to remain with their child up to the time of the procedure/surgery and may rejoin them, one parent at a time, in the recovery room. Young children may bring a favorite toy/security object, pacifier, or bottle/cup for use after their procedure/surgery. Let your child know where you will be waiting, and assure him/her that you will see them after their procedure/surgery is over. Children under the age of 18, who are not themselves patients, will not be permitted at the center.
