Make a Difference

The Promise Campaign will expand our care to more children, and offer comfort to the people who love them.

The Department of Surgery is pleased to formally introduce our new Single-Visit Surgery program at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus and Texas Medical Center - Wallace Tower.

The Single-Visit program combines the pre-operative clinic evaluation and the surgical procedure into one hospital visit. This new approach is ideal for community primary care physicians and pediatricians with pediatric patients needing minor surgical interventions.

Patients with straightforward surgical problems can now be assessed in clinic and have their surgery on the same day. The hospital’s new Single-Visit Surgery program provides a convenient option for busy patient families and consists of a clinic appointment in the morning, and, when indicated and necessary, an outpatient surgical procedure that same day.

The program is available in OtolaryngologyPediatric SurgeryPlastic Surgery.
