Welcome to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and the surgery team. We thank you for choosing us to care for your child. We believe every child’s experience matters and their comfort and safety are our top priorities. This information was developed to help parents and caregivers know what to expect before, the day of, and after surgery.
We’ve also included preoperative information sheet (see below for additional languages) and a surgery checklist for parents, tips on how to talk to your child about having surgery and a handy list of common questions children might ask before surgery.
If you still have questions after reviewing this information, we encourage you to call the pre-surgery center at 877-368-1316 or contact your surgeon’s office.
