Unlike an adult, a child's genitourinary system (the reproductive and urinary organs) is still growing and requires specialized and precise care. At Jefferson, experienced pediatric urologists from Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Center City Philadelphia provide expert diagnosis and treatment of a variety of genitourinary conditions and disorders affecting infants and children.
Congenital abnormalities and other conditions that affect the kidneys, ureters, bladder and male and female genitalia may be treated with surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Always with a focus on the physical and emotional needs of your child, highly trained Nemours physicians use advanced technology and the least invasive treatments designed to reduce stress, lessen pain and hasten recovery.
