Our pediatric surgeons at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital Center for Pediatric Urology are experienced in using open, laparoscopic and robotic procedures to remove all or part of a kidney (nephrectomy) for the treatment of pediatric kidney tumors. Our pediatric urology experts were among the first to perform this minimally invasive pediatric surgery to remove a kidney through a single, small incision.

  • Endoscopic laser treatment for managing stone disease
  • Child hernia/hydrocele repair
  • Neuromodulation using surgically inserted electrodes that can correct the nerve activity responsible for overactive bladder, incontinence and urinary retention
