Pediatric Urology

Get expert pediatric urology care close to home. Lehigh Valley Health Network’s pediatric urologist treats a wide range of conditions that affect the urinary or reproductive tract, using the latest techniques. Our goal is to ensure normal function so kids can focus on being kids.

Most pediatric urology issues, such as bladder defects or undescended testes, are present at birth. These issues are often unexpected and may require prompt treatment.

Our team provides specialized care for children with complex issues affecting the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. We care for children of all ages, including babies soon after birth (or still in the womb).

Our fellowship-trained pediatric urologist – one of only 325 in the country – leads our expert team. We offer the highest quality of surgical expertise while supporting your family throughout the care process.

Surgical expertise

We have performed more than 25,000 pediatric surgeries over the past decade. As the region’s only institutional member of the Children’s Hospital Association, you can expect the highest quality of surgical care.

Pediatric surgery centers

All pediatric surgeries happen in Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital or our outpatient J.B. and Kathleen Reilly Children’s Surgery Center. Our pediatric care teams, including a pediatric anesthesia and sedation team, are trained in the unique needs of babies and children.

Highly trained pediatric urologist

Our pediatric urologist offers you the most effective urologic treatments available today. We take the least invasive treatment approach so children experience exceptional results with less pain after surgery.

Intensive care units

When children require extra monitoring for urologic needs, they are cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Children’s Hospital. Highly trained doctors and nurses provide specialized full-time care focused on children.
