Surgery for Children

Powder River Surgery Center was designed to accommodate the special needs of our pediatric patients. PRSC has a highly qualified nursing staff, and the anesthesia team has extensive training and experience with children. We encourage you to bring your child's favorite toy, stuffed animal or clean blanket with them to offer comfort during their procedure. Parents of small children should bring childcare items such as diapers, bottles and extra underclothes. Parents are required to stay with the child while he or she is in the preoperative and postoperative areas and must remain in the building during the child's procedure. Parents will not be allowed in the operating room.

Preparing For Surgery

Please refer to our full list of pre-surgery instructions that can be downloaded here (PDF).

Your physician will discuss your operation with you during your office visit. Your surgical procedure will be scheduled by your physician. Please be sure to tell your doctor about any existing medical conditions and any medication that you are currently taking. You must make arrangements for a responsible adult to drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours after your surgery. A parent or legal guardian must accompany patients under the age of 18. Legal guardians must provide proof of guardianship. Parents or legal guardians must stay in the facility at all times until patients under the age of 18 have been discharged.

Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your surgery unless your doctor or anesthesiologists direct otherwise. This includes coffee, tea, water, ice, hard candy, gum, mints, cigarettes and chewing tobacco. Aspiration of stomach contents during surgery could be life threatening.

Do not drink alcohol for 24 hours before and after your surgery.

You may brush your teeth or rinse your mouth the day of the surgery, provided nothing is swallowed.

If you take insulin or any other routine medication, your doctor or anesthesiologist will tell you how to take your medication the day of surgery. If you are on insulin, please bring your insulin with you on the day of your surgery.

If you take a blood thinner, please notify your surgeon when scheduling your procedure.

You may take your normal heart, blood pressure, breathing or seizure medication the morning of surgery with a small sip of water. Please bring your breathing and/or emergency inhalers with you on the day of surgery.

Be aware of changes in your physical condition, such as a sore throat or a cold prior to surgery.

CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN IF CHANGES OCCUR.

If your baby, under two years of age, is having surgery, please check with us for special instructions.

You will receive a phone call from a member of our nursing staff to complete a preoperative health assessment. If for some reason we are not able to reach you, please contact us at 307-688-8600. It is very important that we speak with you before surgery.

The Day Of Surgery Info

If you are unable to keep your appointment or you are delayed, please contact the PRSC immediately. Please arrive 60 minutes before your scheduled time unless otherwise notified.

Do not wear any jewelry and remove ALL piercings, makeup, nail polish and lotion. Remove contact lenses, if you wear them. Leave all valuables at home.

Choose low-heeled shoes and loose, comfortable clothing which is easy to put on, take off, and does not bind the site of your surgery. Avoid garments that pull over your head. Sleeves and legs should be loose enough to fit over bandages if necessary.

Bring your photo identification, insurance cards and any expected copay.

When you arrive at the center, please check in at the front desk to register. A nurse will escort you into the preoperative area where a brief medical assessment will be performed. You will be asked to change into a gown provided by the Center. Your valuables will be placed in a secured locker or given to the person who has accompanied you to the Surgery Center. Your anesthesiologist will visit with you prior to surgery.

After your procedure is completed, you will rest briefly in our recovery room under the care of specially trained nurses and monitored by your anesthesiologist. You will then be transferred to a step-down recovery area, where your family and friends can be with you. Please limit your visitors to two at a time.

Try to make other arrangements for siblings to allow for undivided attention to the surgical family member.

Surgery Discharge Instructions

In most cases, depending on your procedure, you will be ready to leave the PRSC in one to two hours following the completion of your surgery. Before you are discharged, your physician will provide specific instructions regarding your at-home care. For your comfort and safety, we remind you of the following:

  • You will not be able to drive yourself home following surgery. You should arrange to have a responsible adult here to drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours.
  • Take it easy until your physician says you can return to your normal level of activity.
  • Carefully follow your physician's written instructions regarding post-operative diet, rest and medication.
  • It is natural to experience some discomfort in the area of the operation. You may also experience some drowsiness or dizziness depending on the type of anesthesia you receive or on the amount of pain medication you are taking at home.
  • Do not drive, operate heavy machinery or power tools, cook, drink alcoholic beverages, make legal decisions, or take any medications not prescribed by your physician for at least 24 hours after your surgery.
  • Contact your physician if you feel you are having problems after surgery. If you cannot contact your doctor but feel your concerns warrant a doctor's attention, call or go to the emergency room closest to you.
  • Before you are discharged, your physician will provide specific instructions regarding your at-home care.
  • A few days after surgery, a member of our staff will call to see how you are doing. If you experience any complications, you may contact us during business hours, or if it is after hours and you feel you need immediate attention, call your nearest emergency room or attending physician.

We're Listening!
