Preparing Your Child for Surgery

Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery and The Children's Hospital at Saint Francis have 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, please complete the secured online pediatric anesthesia questionnaire by clicking the link below. Upon completion, you will be notified if a pre-operative visit is required.

Complete the online pediatric anesthesia questionnaire at least three working days before the scheduled surgery date, excluding weekends and holidays. If you are unable to complete the online questionnaire, please call 918-494-7430, option #1, to schedule a pre-operative appointment.
