It is our goal to ensure your child is comfortable after his or her surgery or procedure. While it is not always possible to make everyone absolutely pain free, physicians, nurses, and staff at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital are committed to alleviating your child's pain to the greatest extent possible. Parents and children also play an important role in helping us decrease pain, fear, and stress in our patients.
Age-appropriate pain scales are used in Comer Children's. You are invited to discuss your concerns about your child's experience with his or her physician, nurse, Child Life specialist, or another care team member.
