Resources to consider if your child is having surgery at the IWK

At left here you will find a list of some of our Children’s Health services related to having surgery at the IWK.

Some surgeries require admission to inpatient units afterwards; others are conducted as day surgeries meaning the patient is discharged the same day. Some also require follow-up in a clinic.

As such, the list at left includes inpatient units, day surgery and recovery, services and clinics. You can search the list by scrolling at left or selecting the first letter of the service name from the alphabet above. Please note this isn’t a complete list – expect more to be added soon.
