Georgia Pediatric Urology manages all genitourinary problems that involve the kidney, ureter, bladder, penis, scrotum, and testicles. Patient age of boys and girls ranges from newborns to young adults up to 18 years of age, however, includes rarely older adults if a urological problem is considered specific to pediatrics and requires special training to be appropriately addressed. Another age-related exception is a prenatal consult when expecting parents are counseled about genitourinary abnormalities, which were found by ultrasound in the fetus. Since patients present at a young age, congenital abnormalities of the genitourinary tract are predominant.
Georgia Pediatric Urology attracts patients from all over Georgia as well as neighboring states. Patients are seen in private offices throughout metro Atlanta. Imaging studies and surgeries are performed at four Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) facilities, namely Egleston, Scottish rite, Scottish Rite Ambulatory Surgery Center, and Outpatient Surgery Center at Satellite Boulevard. Robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery is offered to pediatric patients at North Side Hospital. Robotic surgery improves the performance of complicated laparoscopic surgery.
The HAWK (Help Awaiting Wet Kids) clinic was specifically created by physicians at Georgia Pediatric Urology to attend to the special needs of children with wetting issues and other forms of abnormal urination or voiding dysfunction. HAWK clinic patients are seen in our Meridian Mark office, Marietta and Alpharetta offices only.
Georgia Pediatric Urology strives to improve patient care by exploring new treatment strategies and is consequently engaged in multiple research projects for various pediatric urologic diseases.
Pediatric urological conditions treated by Georgia Pediatric Urology include potentially surgical genitourinary problems, congenital abnormalities, problems with reproduction and urination (voiding) as well as surgical emergencies. These problems include:
