Cincinnati Children’s invites you to an important preoperative program to help you and your child prepare for surgery. Children are usually less frightened when they know what to expect. The program is most helpful for children 3 years old and older. A special tour for teens is also available. You and your child will:

  • Have your questions answered
  • Tour the preoperative area, operating room and recovery area
  • Learn what to expect on the day of the procedure
  • Learn about medical equipment, anesthesia and what it’s like to fall asleep for the operation

The preoperative tour program and parking are free.
