Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is when urine (pee) flows backward from the bladder to the ureters (the thin, tube-like structures that carry pee from the kidney to the bladder). Many children with VUR are born with the condition. It’s graded on a scale from mild to severe, and some milder cases will go away on their own as your child grows and develops. At Nemours Children's, our pediatric urology specialists will give you all the information you need about vesicoureteral reflux and answer any questions about your treatment options.
At Nemours, our urologists are specialists in urology for kids. They’re board-certified in pediatric urology and highly experienced in minimally invasive procedures (when appropriate) that use a tiny cut instead of a large incision to help kids recover faster, with less pain and scarring. Year after year, many are recognized as Best Doctors in America®, as well as "Top Doctors" by local magazines in our regions.
