Treating common and complex urinary conditions in children
A pediatric urologist treats the urinary system, including the kidneys and bladder; in males, the genitals (the penis and testicles) are included. Urinary conditions can be common or complex, ranging from congenital disabilities and difficulty voiding (urinating) to infections and, less commonly, urinary stones that form in the bladder.
Children with urinary system conditions differ from adults with similar problems, so the expertise of a pediatric-trained urologist is essential. Specialists at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's are skilled in diagnosing and treating different parts of a child's anatomy and listen carefully to each patient's concerns. Specialists here also offer biofeedback training using video games for children with bladder control problems to improve bladder muscle control and combat incontinence.
