Pediatric Urology Overview
The Division of Urology of Rady Children’s Specialists of San Diego specializes in diagnosing and treatment options for both routine and rare urinary and genital disorders in infants, children and adolescents.
Our comprehensive care clinic, held daily, is staffed by highly experienced pediatric urologists, all of whom are medical professionals that either board-eligible or have a certificate of added qualification in pediatric urology.
Other services from the pediatric urology team for pediatric patients include the Continence Center, which treats problems and conditions for pediatric patients such as daytime and nighttime wetting, and the 2-B-Dry Program, which has helped many children achieve dryness.
For surgical conditions treated by medical professionals, we use the most advanced approaches and minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. This includes the use of robotic surgery for certain conditions our pediatric urologists treat. (For a complete list of the for urology care conditions we treat, click here.)
To further serve the needs of our patients through urology care, 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.
