Many children need to have surgery, also called an operation. But what does this mean and why is it important?
On this page, you will find information to share with your child about having surgery, written in terms Child Life Specialists believe children can easily understand.
The surgery center is a very busy place, where you will see lots of doctors and nurses taking care of other kids and grown-ups that need to have an operation just like you. They will be wearing "scrubs" or hospital cloths and some doctors and nurses will have on cool colorful "doctor" hats. You will get to wear a "doctor" hat, too.
