Pediatric Urology: Referrals
Our team’s urology physicians are board certified. They have also completed fellowship training in pediatric urology, and are nationally recognized as leaders in this subspeciality.
Exclusively limited to children with urologic problems, we see over 7,000 patients in our clinic per year, and we perform approximately 1,200 surgeries. We offer a full range of services for pediatric urology problems.
Our doctors are experts in surgical repair of minor and complex degrees of hypospadias, as well as for reoperations after failed surgeries that were performed elsewhere. The goal in all cases is to create a functional penis that appears normal.
Through research, we’re working hard to help improve understanding of this common condition.
Our staff has expertise in pediatric laparoscopic surgery, which is performed using miniature telescopes and small "Band-Aid" incisions. The major advantages of this technique are reduced pain and scarring. This is offered as an option for partial or total nephrectomy, pyeloplasty and orchiopexy.
Children with bladder disorders such as spina bifida and exstrophy require specialized care. Urology physicians on the medical staff are very experienced in the management of these problems. We can perform complex surgical reconstruction, when necessary, with the goal of helping your child improve confidence and control.
