Pediatric Urology


The Pediatric Urology at Tabba Kidney Institute is dedicated to providing specialized care for children with urological disorders. Spearheaded by a team of compassionate pediatric urologists, we offer comprehensive services aimed at diagnosing, treating, and managing a wide range of pediatric urological conditions. We understand the unique needs of young patients and their families and are committed to delivering personalized care with sensitivity and expertise.

Conditions We Treat

  1. Hydronephrosis:
    a condition characterized by the swelling of one or both kidneys due to urine buildup. Our pediatric urologists utilize advanced imaging techniques, such as ultrasound and MRI, to diagnose hydronephrosis and develop individualized treatment plans, which may include observation, medications, or surgical intervention to relieve urinary obstruction.
  2. Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR):
    VUR is a condition in which urine flows backward from the bladder into the ureters and kidneys, increasing the risk of urinary tract infections and kidney damage. Our center offers diagnostic testing, including voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) and renal scans, to evaluate VUR severity and guide treatment decisions, which may include antibiotics, endoscopic injection therapy, or surgical correction.
  3. Undescended Testicles (Cryptorchidism):
    Cryptorchidism is a condition in which one or both testicles fail to descend into the scrotum. Our pediatric urologists specialize in the evaluation and management of cryptorchidism, offering hormonal therapy, minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, or orchidopexy (surgical fixation of the testicle) to correct the condition and preserve fertility.
  4. Hypospadias:
    Hypospadias is a congenital condition in which the urethral opening is located on the underside of the penis instead of at the tip. Our center provides comprehensive care for children with hypospadias, including surgical repair procedures, such as urethroplasty and tissue grafting, to restore normal urinary and sexual function.


Our Pediatric Urology Clinic offers a multidisciplinary approach to treating pediatric urological conditions, tailored to meet the unique needs of each child and their family. Our comprehensive services include:
  • Expert evaluation and diagnosis by pediatric urologists, with access to state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic testing.
  • Individualized treatment plans designed to address the specific needs and preferences of each patient, incorporating the latest evidence-based therapies and techniques.
  • Minimally invasive procedures and surgical interventions performed by pediatric urological surgeons with specialized training and expertise in pediatric care.
