At WakeMed Children’s, our goal is to support our pediatric patients and their families by providing comfort to help minimize anxiety at the time of surgery. Parental presence at induction (PPI) helps to reduce anxiety and fear for children by allowing one parent or caregiver to accompany their child to the operating room until the induction of anesthesia.
Before escorting a child into the operation room, all parents and caregivers are encouraged to watch the following introductory video. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child’s surgeon or a member of the surgical team.
