Metro Health offers free tours for children and their family as part of a pre-operative teaching program. In this one-hour interactive session, children and their families participate in a medical play session, visit the surgery preparation and recovery rooms, learn about medical equipment and have their questions and concerns answered prior to their scheduled surgery date. Children have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the surgery process in a manner that is non-threatening and directed to a child’s perspective and special concerns.
