The Cook Children's urology/genitourinary team specializes in providing advanced care for newborns, infants, children, teens, and young adults with acquired or congenital urologic and genitourinary ailments. We treat a wide variety of conditions, some of them very rare.
At Cook Children's our goal is to constantly improve the care we deliver to our patients. To keep that commitment we provide the absolute latest technology and treatments available. Today that means making complicated surgeries simpler, so kids can get better, heal faster, and be home quicker.
Because of its complexity, the genitourinary system often affects other systems in the body. This means your child may be seen by other pediatric specialists such as: a urologist, nephrologist, neonatologist, perinatologist, pediatrician, surgeons, transplant surgeons, geneticists, endocrinologists, neurologists, neurodevelopment specialists, psychologists, nutritionists and/or dietitians and social workers. You and your child also have access to variety of patient and family support such as our Child Life specialists and parent mentors.
Our team is made up of world renowned specialists who have undergone rigorous education and training in pediatrics, urology, and other related specialties. Many of them are also noted educators and pioneers in research. All of which make our urology/genitourinary programs among the most advanced in pediatric care.
