How to Prepare for Your Visit
The Child Life Department offers a pre-admission orientation program most Saturdays which will allow you and your child to ask questions and get used to the hospital environment prior to the actual surgery date. This will reassure your child and give you information so you are better informed to answer questions. You and your child will tour the pre-/post-operative unit, the holding area, the operating room, and the recovery room. Reservations are required. Information about other procedures can be given over the phone by calling (716) 323-1520.
