Our Animals

Our Animals

The distinct graphic animals you'll see on the walls of our operating rooms have become a huge part of who we are. The bright colours make them instantly recognisable. While they look amazing, they actually serve a special purpose. They are designed to offer reassurance and a colourful distraction for children about to undergo surgery. The animals are the last thing a child sees before falling asleep with the anaesthetic.

Research and Impact

Research and Impact

At Kids Operating Room, we conduct independent research to evaluate the impact of our work. For every operation performed in one of our partner hospitals, a local data collector records key data about the operation and its outcomes, as well as its impact on the child and their family.
