Preparing Your Child for Surgery

Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery and The Children's Hospital at Saint Francis has put together information to help you and your child prepare for surgery. This hospital admission may be your child’s first time away from home. We encourage you to pack personal items that he or she associates with home, such as a favorite pair of pajamas, stuffed animal or toy, toothbrush or blanket. If possible, let your child participate in packing for his or her hospital visit to make them feel more involved.

The Children’s Hospital offers tours and educational programs for children before their stay in the hospital or before a medical procedure. To find out more about these services, call the Child Life specialist at 918-502-6333.

To better prepare your child for surgery at The Children's Hospital at Saint Francis, please review the information on the right.
