Children’s Surgery Program
We offer a variety of resources to help children and their families prepare for surgery and know what to expect.Pre-Register
We have gathered information about what you and your child can expect when having surgery at Renown Children's Hospital.
To also help ease stress before surgery, Quackers, a stuffed duck, hosts a short video that guides children and their parents through the entire surgery process. When admitted for surgery, each child receives a Quackers duck of his/her very own!
