The Division of Urology of Rady Children’s Specialists of San Diego specializes in diagnosing and treating both routine and rare urinary and genital disorders in infants, children and adolescents.
Our comprehensive clinic, held daily, is staffed by highly experienced pediatric urologists, all of whom are either board-eligible or have a certificate of added qualification in pediatric urology.
For the seventh consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranks our Urology program among the nation’s best in its “Best Children’s Hospitals” edition.
Other services include the Continence Center, which treats problems such as daytime and nighttime wetting, and the 2-B-Dry Program, which has helped many children achieve dryness. We also perform newborn circumcision.
For surgical conditions, we use the most advanced approaches and minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. This includes the use of robotic surgery for certain conditions. (For a complete list of the conditions we treat, click here.)
To further serve the needs of our patients, we collaborate with other Rady Children’s specialties in multidisciplinary clinics and teams. These include the Disorders of Sex Development (DSD) Team with our Endocrinology and Gynecology divisions, a Stone Clinic with our Nephrology Division and a Spinal Defects Clinic with our neurosurgeons, orthopedists and physiatrists.
