Kids' Urinary Tract & Reproductive System Experts


Pediatric urology specialist examines boy with stethoscope

Nemours pediatric urologists are nationally known for their expertise in helping all children, both boys and girls, with urologic problems (conditions affecting the kidneys, ureter, bladder and genitals). Our care includes medical treatments and, when necessary, surgery. Many procedures are minimally invasive or robot-assisted, using smaller incisions or the body’s natural openings. And that can mean less scarring, faster healing time, fewer infections and less pain for your child.

Conditions We Treat

Conditions We Treat


We see a full spectrum of conditions — far too many to list here. The conditions we treat vary depending upon the location and providers selected. Don’t see a condition listed? Call us.

Why Choose Us

Why Choose Us


If your child needs urologic care, you can count on the experts at Nemours. Our urologists are specialists in urology for kids — board-certified in pediatric urology. Year after year, many are recognized as Best Doctors in America® , as well as “Top Doctors” by local magazines in our regions. And, if your child needs surgery, know that our urologists are extremely skilled in procedures ranging from routine outpatient operations to complex inpatient surgeries. Minimally invasive procedures available may include laparoscopic techniques (using a scope and sometimes other instruments to diagnose, inspect and/or treat a problem) or robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery (when surgeons use a robot to help perform very precise movements through small openings or ports in the body).
