Children and Surgery

NVCS has created a safe and welcoming environment for our pediatric patients and their families. Because the surroundings and experiences are unfamiliar, surgery may be frightening to your child. To make your visit as pleasant and comfortable as possible, we suggest you call us at 203-755-6663 to schedule a personal tour. We’ll be happy to familiarize you with our facility and answer any questions.
