Pre-Surgical Tour

Children and families facing surgery may have a lot of questions. In an effort to answer these questions and prepare you for their upcoming surgery, Children’s National Hospital offers a pre-surgical tour video. Knowing what to expect makes anesthesia, surgery and recovery less stressful for the entire family. A positive experience at the onset helps increase coping skills for future healthcare situations. Additional information can be found here.

Pre-Surgical Tour Video

As a precaution to protect our patients, families and staff, Children’s National Hospital has changed the format of pre-surgical tours to video access only. To talk through the surgical process with a child life specialist, feel free to call us 202-476-5665 or 202-476-8796 or email us. Thank you for your understanding.

This video will help you and your family prepare for surgery at Children's National. We're here to help you understand your upcoming procedure and guide you through the process.
