The tour is both educational and interactive, allowing you and your child to become familiar with what to expect on the day of surgery.

These tours include a combination of teaching techniques to include a walking tour of pre-op and the recovery room, photos of the operating room and an overview of medical equipment, such as an anesthesia mask or IV.

Medical play with pretend or actual medical equipment may also be included depending on your child's age.
