Kids' Urinary Tract and Reproductive System Experts

Pediatric urologists are doctors who take care of children’s kidneys, bladders, ureters and genitals.

If your baby is born with a condition that affects these body parts our Nemours Children's Health team is here to help. We also treat children and teens with issues like urinary tract infections, hydroceles, hernias, vesicoureteral reflux and kidney stones.

The genital area of the body can be difficult for kids to talk about. Parents can feel overwhelmed too. We’re experts at making kids feel better. We also know how to explain complicated urological problems in a way that kids understand.

Our nationally known surgeons offer the latest in laparoscopic and endoscopic surgeries. These are surgical techniques that use smaller incisions. For your child, this means less pain, less risk for infection and a quicker recovery.

The Nemours Children's urology team does everything it can to help kids be their best and happiest.

Top Urology Care for Kids

Spanning multiple hospitals and regions of the country, we treat thousands of kids for urology problems every year.

Delaware Valley/Philadelphia Highlights

  • We use the latest, least invasive surgical techniques. One of the techniques we offer is robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery. This means smaller incisions (cuts) and pinpoint accuracy. 
  • We’re part of the team that that treats children with spina bifida. We work together with orthopedists and neurosurgeons to manage all medical and surgical needs for children with spina bifida in one place.
  • State-of-the-art treatment for kids with overactive bladder. We offer sacral nerve stimulation, which is done by using a device that is placed along the side of the sacral nerves that are involved in bladder and bowel function. The device sends small signals that help the bladder communicate with the brain.
