Seattle Children's, A Family Approach to Surgery

Source: CCA Kids Blog

Seattle Children's publishes blog called On The Pulse, with interesting patient stories on what it is like to undergo treatment and surgeries, which can be a scary process when you don't know what to expect. We enjoy featuring stories of children and families who have found and received successful treatment and want to share their journeys with other families at different stages of the process. Below, you'll learn about Genesis and Grayson, and two journeys through surgery, in “A Family Approach, The Unique Stories of Two Craniofacial Patients." Dr. Kelly Evans, Dr. Raymond Tse and Dr. Craig Birgfield were featured in this article.
