Pediatric Urology Department
Diagnostic approach and treatment of urogenital disorders of children.
Of course, the diseases that occur most often and are observed both in boys and girls are urinal infections, vesicoureteral reflux and obstructive uropathies. Young boys often face usual genital abnormalities (phimosis, hydrocyst, inguinal hernia, cryptorchidism and hypospadias)
Pediatric Urology deals also with pre-birth counseling as regards the embryo in order to diagnose any diseases, such as congenital disorders of the urinal-reproductive system. Its goal is to inform the parents in order to handle appropriately any disorder. This whole process aims to minimize parents’ stress.
The Pediatric Urology Department is equipped with cutting-edge equipment (dedicated thin endoscopes and ureteroscopes) and the methods used are modern and pioneering (minimally invasive such as laparoscopy).
