Tonsil, Adenoid, and Ear Tube Surgery: The Day of Surgery

When you arrive at the hospital, you will need to check in. You will sign a surgery consent form if you haven’t already.

Things you should bring with you

It is important that you have the following with you: 

  • Insurance cards or forms

  • A list of any medicines your child takes regularly

  • A favorite toy or blanket for your child

  • For infants, a bottle and formula or pacifier for after surgery

  • Something to read while you wait
