Our goal is to make your child’s surgery as worry-free as possible.
When your child has surgery at CHOC, an entire support team is oriented around them and your family. Our child life specialists are always at the bedside, explaining surgery in age-appropriate terms and limiting the stress that it can bring. You can be comforted to know that everything we do is tailored to children, from our pediatric-trained staff, to our custom equipment and operating rooms, to our pediatric guidelines for anesthesia and pain management. All of this takes place in one of the safest children’s hospitals in the nation according to The Leapfrog Group.
