Focused on Your Comfort & Convenience

When it comes to sedation, children respond differently than adults. Our anesthesiologists complete pediatric fellowships and are trained in the unique requirements of pediatric patients, whether newborns, toddlers or young adults. We practice sedation techniques developed specifically for children and administer them in ways that minimize anxiety for both children and their parents that include:

  • Flavored and scented masks
  • Kid-sized equipment
  • Allowing parents to accompany children to the OR for the sedation procedure

Additionally, operating rooms are equipped with mobile C-arm x-ray machines that provide high-resolution images in real time, allowing surgeons to monitor progress during the entire procedure. This ensures your child is receiving the best and safest care possible at all times.
