Many urologic conditions are identified early in a child’s life, or even at birth. That’s why experience in diagnosing and treating children with urologic conditions is so important. No other urologic program in the region has more experience and expertise caring for children than the Department of Pediatric Urology at Children’s Hospital Colorado.

Our experts provide a range of tests, services and procedures designed for children. And with surgical outcomes that far surpass international success rates, there is no better place to come for a second opinion on urologic surgery for children.

Our team will decide which specialist is best suited for your child’s symptoms or diagnosis.
