Thank you for choosing CHOC Children’s surgery services. We understand that preparing for a child’s surgery or procedure can be stressful. This guide provides the information families need to ensure that everything is in place before the patient’s surgery. Whether a child is having an elective outpatient procedure or a major invasive surgery requiring an inpatient stay, all procedures and surgeries should be taken very seriously. This information should not take the place of information or instructions provided by the child’s surgeon.

Anita Murphy’s career began far away from CHOC Children’s. She earned her degree in Belfast Northern Ireland where she later worked as a pediatric nurse before moving to London and ultimately coming to CHOC. Today, as a member of the CHOC preoperative nursing team, Anita helps children prepare for surgeries and procedures and helps those who are leaving the hospital the same day with their recoveries and discharge.
