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.

Message from parent

"My son recently had several visits including two surgical procedures at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay. Even though this was during the Covid pandemic, we felt safe and well taken care of. From the time we entered the front door, the staff was professional and thorough in their care. Dr. Baskin, his team, the nurses and support staff were all very caring and thoughtful as they helped us through the process of doctor’s visits, tests and surgeries in the midst of all the uncertainty of Covid-19."


Thank you Dr. Baskin!!!
