Pediatric urologists treat children and adolescents with ailments and diseases related to the genitals and/or urinary TRACTs.

Our pediatric urologists also have years of necessary education, hands-on experience and certifications to be the best in the area.
Pediatric Urology Surgeries
The main purpose of a pediatric service is to diagnose, manage and treat all urinary and genital problems in children. Pediatric urologists also provide more specific services than adult urologists. Our pediatric urologists also can perform surgeries for on the groin (ie hernia repair) or for reconstruction of the urinary tract. Reconstruction of the urinary tract fixes any congenital abnormalities, hypospadias and any disorders of sex development. Lastly, our urologists conduct surgical management of any tumors or malignancies that are present in either the kidney, bladder or testicles.
Pediatric Urology Evaluations
In addition to surgical procedures, our pediatric urologists perform evaluations for nonsurgical conditions. . These types of evaluations include the evaluation and management of bedwetting, , kidney stone disease and urinary tract infections. Additionally, we can evaluate and manage any urinary tract problems that were identified before the birth of your child. Our urologists also evaluate and manage urinary tract problems that are associated with neurological conditions, such as spina bifida. Spina bifida is a birth defect that restricts a growing baby’s spinal cord from developing properly.
