Leading the Way in Pediatric Urology
The Division of Pediatric Urology at Cohen Children’s Medical Center offers comprehensive medical and surgical treatment for children with all conditions related to the urinary and reproductive tract – congenital and acquired. Some of these problems are quite simple while others are among the most complex anomalies. Since many urologic conditions are detected by ultrasound (sonogram) during pregnancy, our physicians are available for a prenatal consultation.
All of our physicians are fellowship trained full-time pediatric urologists who earned The American Board of Urology Certificates of Subspecialization in pediatric urology. We work closely with pediatricians and all pediatric specialists including pediatric nephrologists, oncologists, endocrinologists, geneticists, radiologists and gynecologists to provide wide-ranging and innovative treatment for our patients.
The pediatric urologic surgeons at Cohen Children's Medical Center provide state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgery for infants, children and adolescents. Using laparoscopic and robotic technology, children experience less pain and complications by performing surgery through very small incisions with little or no scarring, a faster recovery time, and a shorter stay in the hospital.
Out-Patient Surgery for healthy children undergoing urologic surgery takes place at the Center for Advanced Medicine or in the main hospital operating rooms when there is potential need for an over-night admission (more complex surgery or children with significant medical problems). These child-friendly environments are staffed by pediatric anesthesiologists and nurses who care for children before, during, and after surgery. Patients recover from surgery in the dedicated pediatric recovery rooms staffed by pediatric nurses who are trained in all aspects of postoperative care.
Children requiring hospitalization will have surgery in the main hospital operating rooms. Parents are allowed to be with their child in the recovery room shortly after surgery and one parent may sleep in the room with their child. For those children from out of town or from foreign countries, families may stay at the Ronald McDonald House located one block from the hospital at very low cost.
