Parents' Guide 

Going Home

It is good for your child to rest as much as possible. Temporary nausea or vomiting are quite common after discharge. If your child experiences any unexpected symptoms, such as fever or more than a little bleeding or pain, call your surgeon immediately.

A nurse will call you the day after your child's surgery to make sure your child is recovering normally. We would also appreciate it if you would complete and return the patient questionnaire you will receive upon discharge. Information from the parents of our patients helps us to plan and improve our service in the future. We want to hear from you!

We are committed to making your child's visit as pleasant and safe as possible. We appreciate you allowing us to be such an important part of your child's surgical experience.
