The Day Before Surgery

You should follow all of the instructions that are given to you by your child's surgeon during the preoperative visit. Make arrangements for your other children to be cared for at home.

Before coming to the hospital, have your child remove any jewelry and nail polish – surgeons will monitor the color of the nail beds during and after surgery.

As part of the Family Surgery Program at Atlantic Health System Children's Health, physician services are provided by Atlantic Medical Group and are on staff at Goryeb Children's Hospital.
