Pediatric general surgery

Your child's general surgery

Knowing what to expect is an important part of getting ready for surgery. Explaining what will happen before, during and after surgery is one of the best ways to help prepare your child for surgery.

At American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, we will help you and your child through each step of preparation, surgery and recovery. We believe the family is part of the team caring for your child. Please ask any questions that you may have during the time that you are with us.
