Expert, Family-Centered Treatment
Watch Addison's Story
Our knowledgeable urology team understands the sensitive nature of urological conditions for children. Urinary tract disorders – including those impacting the kidneys, bladder, urethra and ureters – and those impacting the male reproductive organs, can present both physical and emotional challenges for many children.
That’s why our multidisciplinary team educates patients and families about every treatment approach to treatment, including holistic techniques, and guides them to the best options for their unique situation. Both male and female pediatric urologists are available to ensure patients are comfortable and engaged in a collaborative process of shared decision-making.
When families and patients walk through the door of UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, they can expect to be surrounded by a caring team of professionals supported by the most technologically advanced diagnostic and treatment capabilities.
Choosing the Right Urology Treatment Path
Most children treated by our specialists in urology will not require surgery. That’s good news for many families who appreciate the UH pediatric urology team's staged approach to treatment. Our pediatric urologists start with the least invasive techniques to ensure urology surgery is the best option. Often, this means that patients must learn techniques for managing their condition over time. Families can trust that our team is committed to walking alongside patients every step of the way to ensure the best outcomes for long-term health. If urology surgery is necessary, we work alongside other pediatric specialties including our pediatric anesthesiology team to ensure every precaution is taken for successful outcomes.
Improving Outcomes One Child at a Time
Because every patient has unique factors to their individual urologic condition, we take the time to put personalized care plans in place. For conditions diagnosed before birth, our urologists begin working with parents even before birth alongside the maternal fetal medicine and neonatology teams – to put a care plan in place for urology treatment after delivery. The best care starts with the development and implementation of a treatment plan that is customized to each child’s unique needs and can change and grow as he or she progresses through treatment stages, developmental phases and toward adulthood to support a lifetime of wellness.
