Surgi-Sam (Extended)

Introducing Surgi-Sam! A fun way to help your child understand and feel comfortable about their surgical procedure.

When your child needs surgery, it can raise fears and concerns. Fortunately, scheduling an elective procedure means that there is time to help prepare your child psychologically.

Research and experience shows that kids of all ages, as well as grown-ups, cope much better if they have an idea of what's going to happen and why. Knowing what they may experience makes surgery much less scary and goes a long way to ease anxiety.

With the help of the pediatric surgical nurses at Lowell General, "Surgi-Sam" teaches children about the surgical experience in a manner that is non-threatening and understandable from a child's perspective.
