UK Pediatric Urology physicians address urological conditions and diseases that are present at birth or develop as a child grows. Pediatric urology provides care for both boys and girls ranging from birth to early adult age. The most common problems are those involving disorders of urination and testes. Treatment includes the male reproductive tract and the male and female urinary tract. Common conditions treated include:
- Urinary tract infections (UTI) and vesicoureteral reflux.
- Urinary obstruction.
- Bladder control problems such as bedwetting and daytime urinary incontinence.
- Undescended testes (cryptorchidism) and inguinal hernia.
- Abnormal urethral opening (hypospadias, epispadias, phimosis and buried penis).
- Neurogenic bladder (e.g., associated with spina bifida).
- Genitourinary malformations and birth defects (prune belly syndrome, bladder exstrophy, and ambiguous genitalia).
- Antenatal consults for kidney and bladder abnormalities diagnosed before birth.
