The Center for Pediatric Urology in the Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute provides comprehensive care for the full complement of routine and complex kidney, bladder and genitourinary issues in neonates, children and adolescents. Patients are seen on the main campus and at Cleveland Clinic’s Avon, Independence, Medina, Willoughby Hills and Hillcrest locations. Surgical services are provided on the main campus, Hillcrest location and at the Beachwood Ambulatory Surgical Center, with plans to expand to Fairview in the future. The center offers specialized service for urinary incontinence at our incontinence center. Patients with spina bifidia receive a multidisciplinary approach to treatment options through The Center for Pediatric Urology.
Since 2012 the center has expanded its services with the addition of two full-time pediatric urologists, two pediatric nurse practitioners, and a comprehensive pediatric incontinence center. We work with multidisciplinary clinics including Pediatric Spina Bifida and Pediatric Stone Clinic. Together, this team has helped the Glickman Urology & Kidney institute be named the No. 2 urology program in the nation in 2015-2016 by U.S. News & World Report — to provide care in six major specialty areas.
In addition to common problems, such as recurrent urinary tract infection, incontinence, and genital and urinary anomalies, the urologists offer state-of-the-art care for acquired and congenital problems. These include open and minimally invasive reconstruction of the genitourinary tract, endoscopic treatment of urinary tract stones and congenital anomalies, and surgical treatment of pediatric tumors of the kidneys, bladder and genitalia. They evaluate and treat dysfunctional elimination, provide surgical management of sexual differentiation disorders and treat bladder and bowel disorders associated with myelomeningocele. To minimize trauma and recovery time, the surgeons employ minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery, whenever possible.
Today’s advanced imaging technologies allow many urologic conditions to be detected before a child is born. When genitourinary issues are diagnosed prenatally, the urologists work closely with neonatologists in Cleveland Clinic Children’s to provide parents with a detailed therapeutic plan.
