The Providence pediatric urology team diagnoses and treats all types of problems affecting the kidneys, bladder and ureters.
At Providence, we understand that children aren’t just little adults. The urologic conditions they develop are different than those experienced by older people and the treatments they require can differ as well.
Our team is specially trained to meet the unique urology needs of kids of all ages. Our environment, equipment and interactions are designed to help kids feel comfortable. We know how to put children – and you – at ease and strive to give your kids the best possible care.
With our background and experience, we’re prepared to help kids with all types of urologic conditions, including those that are most complex. Whenever possible, we use conservative, nonsurgical therapies. But if surgery is necessary, our team delivers excellent outcomes.
Conditions we commonly diagnose and treat include:
- Blockages of the kidney or bladder
- Daytime wetting
- Kidney stones
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- Testis and kidney tumors
- Undescended testicles
- Urinary reflux
We also see pregnant moms with a prenatal diagnosis of hydronephrosis and do postnatal evaluations. If preferred our urologists also perform circumcisions on boys.
