We understand that surgery is scary for a child, and for parents, too. For children who require surgery, Chesapeake Urology’s ambulatory surgery center at the Woodholme Medical Center in Pikesville provides the most advanced surgical environment and technology coupled with an atmosphere designed with children in mind. Our pediatric surgical staff understands that children have very different needs than adults when it comes to surgery. Our team takes the time to explain every step of the surgical process to your child in a language they can understand.
From sheets that kids can color on and kid-friendly gowns and slippers to flavored lip balms kids can choose for a fun smelling surgical mask, the surgical team is committed to making a child’s experience as comfortable as possible.
Our ambulatory surgery center offers patients high-quality care in a comfortable, private setting. Our pediatric surgical staff consists of specialty-trained pediatric surgical nurses and board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists. Our center has the latest state-of-the-art equipment and can accommodate a variety of procedures requiring either local or general anesthesia. Because we strive for the highest quality of care, our ambulatory surgery centers are certified by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, which measures the quality of performance of each center and identifies us with the AAAHC symbol of excellence.
Parents are encouraged to call our center with any questions or to arrange for a pre-surgical tour of the operating suite with your child.
