Intraoperative care lasts from the time your child enters the operating room to when the surgery is complete and your child goes to the recovery room. During most of this time, your child will be asleep.

Listed in the directory below is some additional information regarding intraoperative care for your child having surgery, for which we have provided a brief overview.
