To get ready for this procedure, your child must limit food and beverage intake. If your child is able to tolerate solids or liquids, make sure to stop:
- Solid foods seven hours before the arrival time
- Clear liquids three hours before the arrival time
You and your child will report to Same Day Surgery 90 minutes before the start of the procedure, where he / she will be prepared for surgery.
Parents, or legal guardians, are able to stay with the child to the surgery room, where you will meet the surgery team. The anesthesiologist will place a soft mask over your child's face with "sleepy gas." When your child falls asleep, you will be escorted to the Surgery Waiting Area until the procedure is complete.
