Pediatric urology encompasses the care of children who have problems related to the urinary tract and genital organs. The pediatric urologists at Loyola University Medical Center have first trained in general urology and then have spent an additional 1-2 years learning specifically about the care of children and the urological problems that affect them.
Our pediatric urologists care for children with a wide range of conditions. Some of these require surgical correction and others do not. When surgery is required, we offer the complete spectrum of care--from "minor" outpatient surgery to minimally invasive endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures, to major reconstructive surgery. We also work in tandem with a team of pediatric specialists at theRonald McDonald Children’s Hospitalof Loyola University. Whatever the problem is, we will work closely with the patient, his or her parents, and the primary care doctor to evaluate the situation and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
