Can I go back with my child to surgery?

Stony Point Surgery Center Frequently Asked Questions about Child Surgery

Dr. Jennifer Sheehan answers the question: Can I go back with my child to surgery?



Dr. Sheehan: On a case by case basis, we evaluate the best thing to do for your child and the safest thing, and often we find that the parents bring a level of anxiety about the surgery that day that a child isn’t even aware of, they are just thinking about the popsicles afterwards or getting to watch TV all day, and a parent in the OR can transfer that anxiety to their child, and it makes it less than the ideal conditions to start a procedure.
