General Urology

In the Division of Urology, we care for all types of genitourinary conditions. Genitourinary conditions affect the bladder, kidneys, ureters (tubes that connect the kidneys and bladder) and reproductive organs.

Your child is in skilled hands with our Board-certified pediatric urologists and highly trained advanced practice providers and nursing specialists. And when a condition requires more complex care, our team has the expertise to help.

Urological Conditions We Treat

We treat all types of children’s urology conditions, including:

  • Congenital conditions in the bladder, kidneys and urinary system
  • Differences in genital development
  • Foreskin issues such as adhesions, phimosis and uneven circumcision
  • Hydroceles
  • Inguinal hernia
  • Undescended testes
  • Voiding dysfunction (problems with urinating)

We customize children’s treatment based on their needs. Whenever possible, we use our expertise in noninvasive methods, such as biofeedback for pelvic floor dysfunction, to care for pediatric urology conditions. And our doctors’ surgical expertise allows us to successfully revise previous circumcisions or foreskin adhesions.

We also perform advanced tests to inform diagnoses and treatment plans when needed. Learn more about what to expect with pediatric urology diagnosis and treatment.
