To help allay the fears and concerns of the child and family, a Child Life specialist meets with the family before surgery to explain the process that the child will go through. The age-appropriate demonstration will allow your child to see and handle the facemasks and other equipment used during surgery. They’ll see pictures of the operating room and gurney and understand the time line of their procedure. They are free to ask any questions.
