Day Surgery or Ambulatory Surgery means that your child will be safely discharged home on
the same day after a surgical or interventional procedure under general anesthesia. For
some, day surgery is the point of entry to the hospital, even if your child will be admitted
after the procedure.
The links gathered below are to facilitate your search for information and instruction and
to assist you in preparing to care for your child before and after a day surgery. For further
