Who are we?

Our pediatric urology team specializes in sensitive, expert treatment of genital and urologic conditions in children, ranging from bed-wetting to complex birth defects. Our faculty maintains an active research program that allows us to continuously refine the treatment options we offer to children and families.

UCSF's surgical team personally performs any necessary radiological and urodynamic procedures for the evaluation of patients with bladder dysfunction, urinary tract infections, hydronephrosis and incontinence. Urodynamic studies are performed simultaneously with any radiographic studies, obviating the need for a second catheterization in young patients. In addition, UCSF's renowned ultrasonography section frequently is able to diagnose abnormalities that are missed or misinterpreted at other institutions.
