How Does Treatment Work in Pediatric Urology? 

When you come in to have your child’s symptoms examined, your pediatric urologist will first discuss those symptoms with you and your child, review your child’s medical history, and perform a comprehensive physical evaluation. In some cases, further testing may be necessary to achieve a diagnosis. 

Depending on the specifics of your child’s condition, treatment may include medication management, minimally invasive therapies, or surgery.
