Children do especially well at EvergreenHealth Surgery Care – Tan because we are able to minimize the amount of time a child is separated from his/her parents. Our team is made up of expert surgeons and nurses who have a tremendous amount of experience providing a compassionate, family centered and safe environment for our pediatric patients.
To prepare your child for a positive experience, we suggest that you discuss the surgery with them in a relaxed, straightforward manner without mentioning any unpleasant experiences such as needle injections or pain. Outpatient anesthetic techniques should enable your child to have a comfortable experience, but fear of the unknown or expectation of pain can undermine these techniques.
It is a good idea to bring in one favorite toy. If your child uses a bottle or sippy cup, please bring one with you.
We take care of all types of pediatric outpatient surgical procedures, including:
Ear, Nose & Throat
