The time could come when your child needs the skills of a surgeon. Though the thought of surgery can be scary, you can take comfort in knowing that Mercy has a special focus on young patients, and that your child will be in good hands. We’re experienced in performing a variety of surgeries on children, including:
As parents, one of the biggest concerns you might have is about anesthesia, medications used to ensure the safety and comfort of a patient during an operation. Our pediatric anesthesiologists will meet with you and your child before the operation to determine the best way to keep your child comfortable. They’ll monitor your child through each step of the surgical process and help minimize discomfort afterward.
Some Mercy facilities also offer a separate pediatric recovery room, where parents can quickly reunite with their child after surgery. From start to finish, Mercy’s surgery team will be with you and your child, helping you start on the road to recovery.
