Child Life Services at Tufts Medical Center in Boston is dedicated to helping you and your child feel at ease on the day of surgery. That's why our child life specialists created the below video to help answer any questions you may have. You can also schedule a tour of the preoperative area ahead of surgery by calling 617-636-9983 or having the operator page #3995.
