At Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, we understand that your child’s surgery can be a frightening experience for you as well as your child. To help put your parental fears at ease, we’ve taken steps to ensure your child receives superior care both medically and emotionally.
Our pediatric-trained, board certified anesthesiologists and pediatric surgeons perform outpatient (Day Surgery) and inpatient surgical procedures at Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital. To help everyone rest easier, parents are invited into the Operating Room with their children during sedation, and can be at their bedside during the recovery process.
To learn more about how to prepare for your child's surgery, please read our section on Pediatric Day Surgery Information.
