Helping children with urology (urinary tract) conditions

Pediatric urology focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the urinary tract — kidneys, bladder, ureter and genitals. Approximately 8% of girls and 1% to 2% of boys in the United States are diagnosed with a urinary tract infection (UTI) by the time they reach 5 years of age. UTIs are one of the most common urology issues facing children. Bedwetting is another prevalent condition, affecting about 5 million children in the country.

Our Pediatrix® Medical Group board-certified pediatric urologists and advanced practitioners treat infants, children and adolescents with urinary or genital disorders. With diverse training and decades of experience, they treat common urology issues and provide complex care for rare conditions and those requiring surgical intervention.

Bringing expertise and compassion to pediatric patients, our pediatric urologists treat, manage and provide quality, family-friendly urological care to children facing various issues, including:

  • Bladder — Bedwetting (nocturnal enuresis), bladder exstrophy, neurogenic bladder, posterior urethral valves (PUV), prune belly syndrome and Spina Bifida (causes, symptoms and treatment).
  • Genitals — Ambiguous genitalia, care of the uncircumcised penis, epididymal cyst and spermatocele, epididymitis, epispadias, hydrocele and hernia, hypospadias, labial adhesions, meatal stenosis, micropenis, penile adhesions, phimosis, retractile testicles, testicular torsion, torsion of the appendix testis and appendix epididymis, undescended testes, urethral prolapse, urethral stricture, urethrorrhagia and varicocele.
