Paediatric Urology deals with surgical problems of kidneys, bladder and genitalia in children. Often these problems can be detected antenatally and the parents may need counselling. Some of the problems require urgent treatment immediately after birth. It is a complex field and needs specialist experience to decide when surgery is required and when it can be avoided.

Paediatric Urology

HYDRONEPHROSIS: Hydronephrosis can be due to congenital anomalies like PUJ obstruction, Vesico ureteric reflux, posterior urethral valves etc. Antenatal counselling and prompt treatment after birth will help in preventing recurrent urine infections and loss of kidney function. 

PUJ OBSTRUCTION: Majority are detected these days antenatally and do not need surgical correction. However a small proportion of them are severe obstrucion that can result in loss of kidney function over a period of time. It is essential to identify these by proper evaluation with DTPA/ MAG3 scan and ultrasound. Pyeloplasty is advised in such a situation.

POSTERIOR URETHRAL VALVES (PUV):  Often suspected antenatally and confirmed by a test called MCU/ VCUG after birth. Current treatment involves endoscopic correction of valves immediately after birth. Regular follow up is essential to prevent renal failure 

URINE INFECTION; VESICO URETERIC REFLUX (VUR): Recurrent UTI in children may be due to VUR. Often it resolves spontaneously. Recurrent UTI despite medical  treament warrants intervention. Endoscopic STING procedure, or open Ureteric Reimplantation is

HYPOSPADIAS: In this condition, boys pass urine from under surface of penis. Correction at the age of 1 makes them pass urine like other children and prevents future problems like infertility.

ENDOSCOPIC SURGERY: Endoscopic treatment is available for conditions like Posterior urethral valves, urinary stones, ureterocele, vesico ureteric reflux and many similar problems that can occur in children.

LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY: Laparoscopic surgery is offered to many paediatric urology problems (undescended testis, varicocele, nephrectomy for multi cystic dysplastic kidneys or non functioning kidney in ectopic ureter; pyeloplasty for PUJ obstruction).

ESWL: Stones in children can be broken without surgery with the help of ESWL. They can also be removed with the help of endoscope or PCNL.

URODYNAMICS: This special test provides information about a bladder that is not functioning well. Neurogenic bladder is a problem seen in children with spine abnormalities like meningocele, myelomeningocele and spina bifida.
