The pediatric urologists at Children’s Hospital Colorado work with the urologists at the University of Colorado Hospital to provide continuous care to teens and young adults with bladder, kidney and genitalia disorders.
As kids grow into teens and young adults, they make decisions about school, careers, relationships and more. Also during this time, young adults age out of pediatric care.
The goal of the Urologic Transitional Care Program is to help teens with urological problems, move from pediatric care easily into adult care. Patients with complex health problems benefit from working with our experts who understand both their medical care and the obstacles and choices that come with growing up.
Our Urologic Transitional Care Program includes specialists from urology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, rehabilitation and physical and occupational therapy . Together, we run an adolescent and young adult clinic.
At the clinic, our team encourages young adults to take part in their healthcare decisions. Meeting with all of the specialists allows teens to take control of their care as they move into adulthood.
