Default fears of surgery

Hi everyone
my Niece is 12 years old, she had her first appointment with the surgeon today, as she lives in Hobart and had to fly to Melbourne for the appointment and will have to have the surgery there to, i am feeling very anxious about the whole situation and in particular about the surgeon, i know we cant mention names on here so i wont, but he is so young and i worry about his level of experience and skill, he wants her to have the op in a month and no longer than 3 months time due to her growth spurts, does anyone have any advice on what i should do or any recommendations of surgeons in Melbourne (PM me please)
any advice will be greatly appreciated
