Pediatric Surgery Specialist
The Pediatric Surgery Child Life Specialists sees children prior to surgery in all of our surgery departments. They provide psychological preparation for children and families prior to surgery and radiological exams.
These specialists provide bedside activities so children can play before and after their procedures. They facilitate medical play with children to acquaint them with the medical supplies and equipment they will see and use. Additionally, they work closely with the medical staff to support children and their families through the entire experience.
