Urological Conditions in Children
Each year, millions of children in the United States are affected by abnormal conditions of the urinary tract and kidneys. We treat many pediatric urological conditions, including:
- Bed-wetting (nocturnal enuresis) – most bedwetting is a normal part of development, but it can be a concern if it comes on suddenly or persists in older children.
- Problems with daytime urinary control.
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs).
- Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR) – the backward flow of urine from the bladder into the tubes leading to the kidneys (ureters). It can be treated with medications or surgery.
- Hypospadias – a condition present from birth where the opening of the male urinary tract (urethra) is located on the underside of the penis instead of at the tip. It can be corrected with surgery.
- Undescended testicle – a condition where the testicle doesn’t move into position under the penis at the time of birth. It’s common in premature infants and may resolve on its own. In other cases, surgery can correct.
- Varicocele – enlargement of the veins in the scrotum similar to a varicose vein. It may be harmless or it may require surgical treatment.
