Paediatric Urology

Title : Paediatric Urology

Paediatric Urology is a sub-specialty of Paediatric Surgery that focuses on treating children with urinary and genital problems. A paediatric urologist is a surgeon who can diagnose, treat, and manage these diseases in babies, children and adolescents.

Urological conditions in children are often different from those experienced by adult patients. Paediatric urologists are skilled to carry out examinations and treatment that are suitable and comfortable for children. They use equipment and facilities specifically designed for children.

Surgery is required for many urological conditions in children with congenital birth defects. Some urological operations may be done with minimally invasive techniques like laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
