Pediatric Same Day Surgery

Inpatient and outpatient surgery that’s made for kids

At Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center we want kids to respond well to surgery. That’s why we have a specially designed Pediatric Same Day Surgery Unit just for kids.

So when your child needs a procedure - having her tonsils removed, for example - there’s a kid-friendly place to go. The Same Day Surgery Unit is comfortable, with family areas for before and after surgery. There are also games and videos for children to enjoy before their procedures.

We even find ways to make surgery “fun.” (Really!) Take chocolate gas, for example. Our pediatric anesthesiologists have found that using smells like chocolate or bubble gum makes kids more curious than cautious about anesthesia. And that’s just the beginning of the ways we help kids through surgery.

When it comes to taking the scary out of surgery, this is their hospital.
