Pediatric urology is the surgical specialty that focuses on the urinary tract of boys and girls, and on the reproductive system of boys. Pediatric urologists are specially trained medical professionals who diagnose, treat and manage urological disorders in children.
Common pediatric urological disorders include:
- Daytime incontinence
- Urinary tract infections/obstructions
- Undescended testes
- Hypospadias – birth defect in males; abnormally placed urethra
