Pediatric Patients at the Foothill Surgery Center

Children are Special

At Foothill Surgery Center we work hard to meet the special needs of children and create a relaxed, comfortable environment. Children can bring a favorite toy or blanket to the surgery center.

Pediatrics at Foothill Surgery Center

What to Expect

We encourage parents to discuss the surgery with your child beforehand to help alleviate stress. Parents are also encouraged to stay with your child until surgery begins and may rejoin your child as soon as it is appropriate. Upon release, we recommend that one adult drives home while the other cares for your child.

Pediatric Tours

The surgery center offers a pre-surgery tour that is designed specifically for our pediatric patients.

We highly encourage one or both parents to bring their child to this tour as it helps to lessen anxiety and promote familiarity with our facility.

Please call our front desk at (805) 681-6550 if you have any questions about your child's care or to to schedule an appointment for a pediatric tour of our facility.
