Day surgery or ambulatory surgery means that your child will be safely discharged from the hospital and allowed to go home on the same day that they have a surgical or interventional procedure under general anesthesia. For some patients, day surgery is the point of entry to the hospital, even if the child is admitted to the hospital only after the procedure.
The Surgical Day Centre (SDC) team prepares patients and families for the surgical experience, and provides post-surgical care and assessment. The service includes physical assessment of your child, required consultation, appropriate laboratory work-up and psychological preparation for what to expect on the day of surgery.
