The Preoperative (or "Pre-Op") Clinic at Boston Children's Hospital will likely be your first stop if your child is scheduled for surgery or other procedures performed under anesthesia.
At the Pre-Op Clinic, you’ll receive information about your child’s surgical visit, including:
Our anesthesiologists will also review your child’s medical history and create a plan of care for both during and after surgery. Our preoperative nurse practitioners and doctors will be available to answer any questions you have about anesthesia and the surgical process.
We understand that having surgery or simply being at the hospital can be a frightening time for your child and for you, so we’ll do everything possible to make sure you’re prepared.
Patients and families waiting in the Pre-Op Clinic can grab a cup of coffee or take a stroll through the Prouty Garden while staying connected to the clinic through a little red lobster. The clinic's lobster-shaped beepers light up when it's your turn to visit the clinic.
Boston Children’s offers photo and video virtual tours that will walk you and your child through the pre-op experience.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
