A Paediatric Urology is a speciality dealing with surgical problems of kidneys, bladder and genitalia in children. Often these problems can be detected antenatally and the parents may need counselling. Some of the problems require urgent management immediately after birth. It is a complex field and needs specialist experience and careful investigation to decide when a surgical intervention is required and when it can be avoided. SRMC has a full time dedicated paediatric urologist specialised in tackling urinary problems in children. The following facilities are available.
ANTENATAL COUNSELLING: Advice is offered to parents of children whose problems are detected before birth. They can benefit from information like what is the possible outcome, what are the treatment options etc.
ENDOSCOPIC SURGERY: Endoscopic treatment is available for conditions like Posterior urethral valves, urinary stones, ureterocele, vesico ureteric reflux and many similar problems that can occur in children.
LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY: Laparoscopic surgery is being performed successfully for several paediatric urology problems like undescended testis, varicocele, nephrectomy for multi cystic dysplastic kidneys, laparoscopic pyeloplasty for PUJ obstruction.
ESWL: Stones in children can be broken without surgery with the help of ESWL. They can also be removed with the help of URS or PCNL.
URODYNAMICS: This special test provides information about a bladder that is not functioning well. This can be a problem in children with spine abnormalities.
