Pediatric urology conditions include a wide range of conditions involving the genital and urinary tracts. Often these are congenital (present at birth) and diagnosed as early as prenatally or in infancy; in many cases, they are treated and resolved early in life, sometimes through surgical reconstruction.
The pediatric urology team at Children’s Hospital has the expertise and training to successfully diagnose and treat disorders of both the genitals and urinary tract. We treat everything from bedwetting to urinary tract infections to birth defects requiring reconstructive surgery.
