Urology

Pediatric urology is a surgical subspecialty that focuses on problems of the urinary tract (bladder, ureters and kidneys) and genitalia. A variety of urologic problems, both simple and complex, can affect infants, children and adolescents. At Indiana University Health, dedicated physicians, nurses and other clinicians provide focused care for infants, children and adolescents with all types of urologic problems.

Pediatric urologic conditions can be congenital, meaning they are present at birth, or they can develop later in childhood. In some cases, urologic problems can even be detected via ultrasound before birth. A few specific conditions that our pediatric urologists regularly diagnose and treat include hydroceles, hypospadias, undescended testes, urinary tract infections, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, kidney stones, vesicoureteral reflux and voiding dysfunction.

Our pediatric urology experts are skilled at making your child feel relaxed and comfortable during examinations and procedures while explaining conditions, tests and treatments in ways that you and your child can understand. We work routinely with multidisciplinary pediatric teams throughout IU Health to ensure that your child receives comprehensive care.

At Indiana University Health, our pediatric urologists and uniquely trained nurses and support staff have the skill and experience to care for children with even the most complex urologic conditions. Our pediatric urology program at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health is nationally ranked among the top 5 in the country by the U.S.News & World Report for Best Children’s Hospital. Our doctors are adept microsurgeons who, in a philosophy known as Patient- and Family-Centered Care, work in partnership with your family to determine the best treatment. We provide education for you and your child on the conditions we treat and any therapies you might need to complete at home.

Through our affiliation with the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Urology, our pediatric urology team actively participates in research to find more effective ways to care for children with urologic problems. This partnership means that our pediatric urologists have access to the most advanced tools for diagnosing and treating urinary system disorders and play a key role in training the physicians of tomorrow.
