When your child needs care for a urologic condition, you want an experienced team that specializes in working with children and their families. At University of Miami Health System, our doctors, nurses, social workers, and support staff work together to offer comprehensive care and the latest treatments in a kid- and family-friendly setting.
Whether your child has recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), was born with a congenital urinary condition, or has another problem that affects the urinary system, we’re here to help. We work alongside specialists with Holtz Children’s Hospital and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital to provide pediatric urology care throughout South Florida.
We’re dedicated to delivering quality, compassionate care to children. Our urologists are also researchers and educators who are on the leading edge of pediatric care. Our pediatrics team is part of a dynamic research environment where doctors are discovering some of today’s most advanced approaches. That means your child benefits from treatments you can only find at a university-based health system.
