Pediatric kidney transplantation part 25

Children

 

Many hospitals prepare children for surgery using age-appropriate  materials such as soft cloth dolls, puppets, medical equipment, photographs, books, and other resources. They may be able to have a tour of the hospital ward prior to the surgery if they haven’t stayed there before. These programs not only teach your child about hospital stays and procedures but also give them a chance to express their feelings in a non-threatening way and address any misunderstanding. When your child feels prepared, they are less afraid and feel more in control.

The transplant surgery will typically take 4 or more hours. The transplant surgeons and anesthesiologist will meet with you and your child prior to the surgery to discuss  the procedure, obtain consent, discuss the anesthesia and answer any last minute questions you may have.
