Part of the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute our pediatric specialists manage disorders of the kidney, bladder and genitalia in children. Our team includes urologists, nephrologists, fetal medicine specialists, endocrinologists, oncologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, nurses and social workers.

The team collaborates to offer inpatient evaluation, as well as medical or surgical intervention for acquired and congenital problems. We see patients in the Glickman Tower on the 9th floor (Q9-1) at Cleveland Clinic’s main campus, as well as at our family health centers.

Urology conditions are those that affect:

  • Kidneys
  • Reproductive system
  • Urinary tract

More serious conditions of the urinary tract or kidneys may be associated with frequent, uncontrolled or painful urination. Through our multidisciplinary team of pediatric specialists, we evaluate, diagnose and treat all acquired and congenital urologic conditions. Some of those include:

  • Advanced imaging technologies allow many urologic conditions to be detected before a child is born. This gives parents, physicians and medical specialists the opportunity to plan ahead and develop a detailed course of therapeutic action.
  • We are familiar with advanced treatments for these conditions and have assisted in the development of many of them. Our specialists continue to refine modern technologies and techniques while at the same time conducting research to create even more effective therapies.
  • Nationally ranked pediatric programs in Urology and Kidney Disorders in U.S. News & World Report.
