Preparing your child for surgery.
To make sure you get the best, safest care possible, we need some important information about you. Before your child comes to the hospital for surgery, please complete and bring with you a copy of this Pediatric Health Status Summary for children under the age of 13.
General anesthesia provides complete absence of pain and total loss of consciousness during surgery. Our anesthesia team is very skilled in safely administering anesthesia medications to children of all ages.
