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, and they range from birth defects 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 the diagnosis and treatment of 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.
