Postoperative Care

Postoperative care lasts from the time your child enters the recovery room until discharge from the hospital. The length of this phase depends on the type of surgery and your child's medical condition. Most children with minor surgical procedures may be discharged the same day of the procedure. Major surgeries will require longer recovery times and, perhaps, a stay in intensive care.

During this time, it will be helpful to become familiar with the normal discomforts that your child may experience following surgery and the usual measures taken to help control pain postoperatively. Listed in the directory below is some additional information regarding postoperative care for your child, for which we have provided a brief overview.

If you cannot find the information in which you are interested, please visit The Child Having Surgery Online Resources page in this Web site for an Internet/World Wide Web address that may contain additional information on that topic.
