Pediatric experts in the Department of Pediatric Urology provide care for children in the Rocky Mountain region and around the world with congenital and acquired urologic conditions. These conditions include problems with the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra and genitalia.

We provide expert diagnosis, testing, medical consultation and treatment for the full range of pediatric urological conditions of the bladder, kidney and genitalia. As a parent, it is important for you to know that our pediatric doctors, nurses and technicians are specially trained to explain these procedures to your child and help them feel as comfortable as possible during their tests. 

Why choose Children’s Hospital Colorado for the treatment of urologic conditions?

When you bring your child to our Department of Pediatric Urology, they will be cared for by an experienced and knowledgeable care team. Our team members are willing to take time to answer your questions and provide you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions.

We use extensive noninvasive diagnostic testing and minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopy (a robot-assisted surgery) to minimize a child’s discomfort and scar size. Our surgical complication rates are among the lowest in the nation and we consistently receive excellent patient experience scores.

Collaboration among experts in pediatric surgery, orthopedics, neonatology, oncology, nephrology, genetics, neurosurgery, endocrinology, rehabilitation and adolescent gynecology allows us to care for complex, multi-system disorders.

We also work closely with neighboring University of Colorado Health Hospital to offer a seamless and positive transition for teenagers as they graduate to adult care.
