If your child has an illness or disease of the genitals or urinary tract (kidneys, ureters or bladder), a pediatric urologist has the experience and qualifications to treat your child.
Children are not just small adults. They cannot always say what is bothering them. They cannot always answer medical questions, and are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a medical examination.
Pediatric urologists know how to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative. Services provided include:
Evaluation and management of voiding disorders, vesicoureteral reflux, and urinary tract infections that require surgery.
Surgical reconstruction of the urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, and bladder) including genital abnormalities, hypospadias, and intersex conditions.
Surgery for groin conditions in childhood and adolescence (undescended testes, hydrocele/hernia, varicocele).This information was compiled with help from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
