How is ureterocele treated?
Treatment of an ureterocele is dependent on the child’s age, overall health, medical history and extent of the condition. Treatment options can include a minimally-invasive surgery which decompresses the ureterocele or removes the ureterocele sac entirely. More extensive surgery may be necessary if function of the kidney has been reduced.
Why choose Children’s Hospital Colorado for your child’s ureterocele?
At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we have experts in fetal medicine who can diagnose ureteroceles early in pregnancy and ensure the most appropriate care. Once the diagnosis is confirmed following delivery, we have experts who are actively involved in both the care of children with this condition and performing research to ensure that care continues to improve.
