Pediatric Urology Clinical Care

Clinical Care

The Division of Pediatric Urology provides a wide range of services throughout the state of Indiana and has the busiest pediatric urology surgical practice in North America based on surgical case volume. It is recognized internationally as a leader for several procedures, including complex urinary tract reconstruction. Since these patients require lifelong follow up and care after surgery, the division developed the Transitional Urology Clinic, which is one of the only clinics of its kind in the country. The team is also internationally recognized for expertise in complex genital reconstruction. It is one of only four centers in the U.S. designated as a Center of Surgical Excellence for surgical reconstruction for children born with congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
