Specialized Care for Urologic Conditions
We diagnose and treat conditions of the kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra in infants, children and young adults. Our services include surgical and non-surgical treatments.
Schedule an appointment with your child’s primary care provider if your child experiences discomfort while going to the bathroom. Your pediatrician may then refer you to a specialist for pediatric urology care.
Our urologists diagnose and treat:
Urinary tract infections: An infection affecting any part of the urinary tract system. It may cause an increased urge to urinate, pain while urinating and a fever.
Hypospadias: A congenital condition in boys where the urethra opening is in the wrong place. It requires surgical correction.
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR): A disorder where urine goes the wrong way so that it flows back into the kidneys.
Enuresis: Commonly known as bedwetting, your children’s urology specialist will need to identify the cause of your child’s loss of bladder control at night to correct it.
Hydronephrosis: An obstruction is blocking the ureter, causing a backup of urine to the kidney. Because of this blockage, children may have difficulty urinating and feel pain in the abdomen.
Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstructions: A blockage in the kidneys that prevents the flow of urine out of the organs. Severe cases need surgery to get rid of the blockage.
We provide children’s urology services using advanced diagnostics and treatments in a child-friendly and supportive environment.
