Compassionate, Personalized Care

Our board-certified sedation specialists evaluate every child before a scheduled test or procedure to determine whether a child will need sedation, and what type of sedation to offer. Considerations include the child’s age and developmental level, length of time it takes to perform the test or procedure, amount of discomfort expected during the test or procedure, and the child’s medical condition.
