We have provided you with a lot of information at your finger tips. Should you have any further questions or concerns we would gladly respond to your questions by calling the Georgetown Surgery Center at 202-444-2746.
Once surgery is planned for your child you can expect a phone call from the Pre Surgical Testing Center. A registered nurse will obtain necessary medical information about your child and determine if your child will need to come in for pre-operative testing. Most pediatric operations will be performed under general anesthesia unless otherwise indicated. Many cases do not require pre-operative testing. If, however your child's surgeon has ordered laboratory tests, the nurse will inform you during the pre-operative telephone interview call.
