Pediatric Urology

Pediatric urologists treat children (and occasionally adults) with reconstructive problems related to the genitourinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, vagina, genitalia). Such patients might have any one of a number of conditions, including congenital malformations of the genitalia or urinary tract, or new or acquired diseases of the genitourinary tract. Complications arising from circumcision are also commonly seen. Our team of specialists also actively supports a Myelodysplasia Clinic through Shriners Hospitals for Children.
