Pediatric Urology


Our pediatric urologists have years of specialized training to understand and meet the unique needs of children with urinary tract and genitalia problems. The care available at Children's Hospital ranges from simple procedures to the most complex reconstructive surgery. Whenever possible, we take a minimally invasive approach that is less traumatic than traditional surgery.

Vanderbilt Pediatric Urology is recognized as one of the nation's best by U.S News & World Report. A top-five ranking reflects our commitment to providing children and their families with world-class care by one of the most experienced urology teams in the nation.

Planning your visit

We understand that a hospital or clinic visit can be stressful. Our urology clinic planning page includes new patient information packets, how to prepare for tests or surgery, conditions treated, and more.

Robotic precision with a human touch

Our surgeons use a new, precise robotic device for pediatric urology surgeries, joining an elite group of children's hospitals that employ this innovative tool.

Anesthesia custom-fit for kids

Children react differently to anesthesia. Our pediatric anesthesiologists have years of specialized training to ensure the best outcome for your child.
