Resources to Help You Prepare for Surgery Day

Knowing what to expect and arriving prepared help make things go smoothly for you and your child on the day of the surgery or procedure.

Ready for your procedure or surgery

We know that on the day of the procedure or surgery, your child may be hungry or anxious, and you might be too. We want your child’s OSC experience to be as smooth and comfortable as possible, so please share your concerns and needs with us.

Recovering at the hospital and at home

Immediately after the procedure or surgery, your child will receive care in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). Your child’s doctor will come find you in the waiting room to describe how the surgery went. Once your child is recovered, you and your child will check out with home recovery instructions in hand.

If you ever have a question or concern, we encourage you to call the OSC. With our family-centered approach to care, you are a part of the team, along with our top doctors, exceptional nurses, and staff.
