We offer a pediatric preoperative tour upon request. The hour tour, which is led by a registered nurse, provides children and their families the opportunity to visit our Center prior to a scheduled procedure.
As a patient, you will receive a telephone call from one of our registered nurses the day after your surgery to make sure you are doing well and to answer any questions you have about your recovery.
