Photo Journal: One child's tonsillectomy experience at Mills Hospital Surgery Center
Robert*, a four year old boy, is getting ready for his tonsillectomy at Mills Hospital Surgery Center. He has already visited the surgery center with his parents several days prior to his operation; as a result, he is comfortable with the nursing staff and the center. He also had a preoperative appointment with Dr. Bock to discuss how to care for his throat after surgery and has recieved medical clearance to proceed with surgery from his pediatrician.
*Our patient's name was changed to protect his privacy. We would like to thank him and his parents for helping us put together this journal which will help other families prepare for surgery.
