Surgery for Children and Young People
Welcome to the children’s surgery webpages for South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
We know that having an operation can be a really worrying time for you and your parents. We hope this website will provide you with some information that will help make it easier.
Most importantly, we will look after you – we have a great crew. We have nurses specially trained in looking after children following surgery and lots of doctors specifically trained to do children’s surgery or to help you get to sleep before surgery and wake up safely after it.
Whether you need a planned operation or an emergency operation, we hope you and your parents will feel safe and well looked after.
