Your Child's Surgery

How can I help my teen?
  • Keep your teen involved in all aspects of planning the surgery
  • Respect your teen's need for privacy and be supportive of his or her thoughts and feelings.
  • Encourage the teen to talk about any concerns, realizing that there may be some concerns your teen doesn't want to share with you.
  • Attend a surgery tour, if possible, or down our KidSpeak Medical Prep for Kids app to see a virtual tour of the surgery areas. (Available at the App Store or Google Play)
