Paediatric urology is the diagnosis and treatment of congenital (i.e. present at birth) and acquired urological conditions and diseases in children. A paediatric urologist treats disorders of the genitalia (e.g. undescended testicles, hypospadias) and the urinary tract (reflux, urine infections, hydronephrosis).
The Consultant Urologists at the Portland Hospital care for babies and children with urological disorders up to the age of 16.
They also give advice and counselling on abnormalities detected in pregnancy and have very specific expertise in this area in order to provide clear, helpful and sympathetic advice.
