Where will my child have surgery?

Your child most likely has been referred by your pediatrician to a pediatric surgeon or other specialist that has special training to care for infants, children and adolescents. Surgery may be performed at a physician's office, a clinic, an outpatient surgery center or the hospital, depending on the following:

  • The reason for surgery
  • Whether the surgery is considered major or minor
  • Whether or not the surgery is an emergency
  • Your physician's preferences
  • Your preferences

Pediatric surgeons often work with a multidisciplinary team, including anesthesiologists, radiologists, nurses and other medical professionals who are experienced in caring for children.
