If your child needs an operation our surgery scheduler will help arrange the date and location for that procedure. We will also precertify your insurance. The hospital and the anesthesiologist will contact you within a few days of surgery with further instructions such as what time to arrive, where to check in, and when to stop feeding your child.

We understand that children who are hungry can also be cranky! The anesthesiologist will minimize this stress to your child, and most children can have water or apple juice until about 2 hours prior to the scheduled operation time.

Our surgery scheduler will assist in arranging your date for surgery, and will also pre-certify your insurance.

If you are traveling to Dallas from outside our region we can arrange outpatient evaluation with surgery already scheduled the following day. If you take aspirin we ask that you stop it 10 days prior to the scheduled operation.
