When we're about to undergo surgery, there's always supposed to be a conversation beforehand about the risks involved. Whether doctors are removing a brain tumor or just some wisdom teeth, that conversation needs to happen so our decision to go through with it can be an informed one.

But as worrying as they might be for adults, it's not hard to see why a child who needs surgery would be twice as worried. And one hospital is doing something about that.
