YOUR CHILD'S SURGERY
No matter how simple or complex
your child’s surgery, we understand that
no procedure is small when it involves
your child. At Alberta Children’s
Hospital, we perform over 8,000
surgeries each year. That’s experience
you can count on! Our caring,
child-friendly team of surgeons,
anesthesiologists, nurses and child life
specialists are specially trained to
meet the needs of children and families.
Rest assured, you are in good hands.
A child having surgery can be stressful
for the entire family, whether it is
planned or unexpected. We find families

resources to help your family prepare
for the upcoming surgery.

Stay Surgical Unit. During this time,
