Pediatric Urology

Diagnosing and treating conditions of the genitourinary tract in infants and children

Pediatric urology conditions can be difficult for a child to share either because they are too young to understand or explain what’s bothering them or because the issue can be sensitive or embarrassing (like bedwetting). Pediatric urology physicians are specially trained, so they know how to examine and treat your child in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative. In addition, pediatric urologists use equipment specially designed for children to create a comfortable and non-threatening environment for your child.

DMG Children’s Rehabilitative Services (DMG CRS) provides state-of-the art treatment for conditions of the genital and urinary organs from Board Certified, fellowship-trained pediatric urology specialists. Urological conditions in children range from the common to complex and impact quality of life for your child and your family.

Conditions DMG CRS pediatric urology specialists treat include:

  • Bed wetting (enuresis)

  • Hydronephrosis (swelling of kidneys)

  • Hypospadias (a birth defect in boys in which the opening of the urethra is not located at the tip of the penis)

  • Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction (a congenital condition in which part of the kidney is blocked)

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)

  • Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR)

As urological issues often impact your child’s growth, development and mental health, DMG CRS urologists will collaborate, as appropriate, with other DMG CRS specialists, such as nephrologyprimary care and behavioral health, to develop a holistic treatment plan to support your child.
