A Guide to Your Child's Surgery

Our Surgery Guide will help you and your family prepare for your child's upcoming surgery, outlining what to expect from the first pre-op visit all the way through to her discharge.

Appointments

If your child's doctor has recommended surgery for your son or daughter, you probably have a multitude of questions and concerns — not just about the surgery itself, but about what to do and expect next.

At Children's Hospital, we'll be happy to guide you through the process. By calling our main number — 215-590-2730 — you can schedule your child's first appointment with us, regardless of the location at which your child will be treated. We'll attempt to schedule all the appointments your child needs during that visit so you won't have to make several visits before surgery.

For New Jersey residents seeking to schedule your child's first appointment with our surgeons who practice in New Jersey, we have two additional local phone numbers available for your convenience: 856-964-8219 or 609-777-9590.

Locations

Depending on the type of surgery your child needs, he or she may be able to have the procedure done at one of our Pediatric & Adolescent Specialty Care Centers.
