Urologic conditions can be uncomfortable for children and teens. We’re here to help. Pediatric urologists at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent, in Indianapolis, are specially trained in caring for children with disorders of the urinary system and genital tract. From bed-wetting and urinary tract infections to congenital malformations, we’re here for your child. We start by listening to you and your child, to better understand their health. Then, we work together to create a care plan that’s right for your child and family.
Caring for children with urologic conditions
No matter how simple or complex your child’s urologic condition is, our urology care team at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital is ready to deliver the compassionate, personalized care your child needs. These types of conditions can be uncomfortable — especially for kids. We help make your child feel comfortable and deliver child-friendly testing to diagnose urologic conditions. We care for kids with all types of urinary and genital conditions, including:
- Bed-wetting (nocturnal enuresis)
- Congenital anomalies (malformations present at birth)
- Daytime wetting (urinary incontinence or diurnal enuresis)
- Hydrocele (swelling in the scrotum)
- Hydronephrosis (swelling in a kidney)
- Hypospadias (when the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis)
- Kidney infection
- Kidney stones
- Trauma to the genitals or urinary tract
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
- Vesicoureteral reflux (when urine flows backward from the bladder)
- Urinary tract obstructions
For some conditions, surgery may be recommended as part of your child’s care plan. Our connection to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital means your child will have a dedicated pediatric surgery team. Our team includes pediatric urologic surgeons, anesthesiologists, physical therapists and pharmacists. Whenever possible, pediatric surgeons use minimally invasive procedures. Minimally invasive surgical techniques use small incisions and typically lead to a shorter recovery.
We understand surgery can feel scary for your child and your family. Tell us your concerns and ask us your questions — big and small. Your child’s care team takes the time to explain the procedure to you and your child. We also explain what to expect before surgery and how to care for your child after surgery.
Get a second opinion from a pediatric specialist
Get the confidence and peace of mind that your child’s doctor and care plan are right for your child and family. It's easy to get a second opinion at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. We can review your child’s medical records and healthcare history to answer your questions and discuss options. Talk with one of our doctors about a personalized care plan for your child.
When your child has a urologic condition and you're deciding on a care plan, there’s a lot to think about. We can discuss both therapeutic or surgical treatment plans. Our team of highly experienced pediatric specialists can provide you with a second opinion based on experience and as part of an integrated national network of care.
Before your child’s appointment, check with your insurance company to find out if a second opinion is covered. We can request your child’s medical records from their doctor on your behalf, so that they can be shared with your care team before your arrival.
