Dr. Emily Blum Becomes Board-Certified in Pediatric Urology

Georgia Urology – the largest urology practice in the Southeast and the fifth largest of its kind in the country – is now home to the only practicing board-certified female pediatric urologist in the state, Dr. Emily Blum. Local parents looking for diversity in providers now have the opportunity.

“Girls experience plenty of urological challenges,” explains Dr. Blum. “Female patients may feel more comfortable seeing a female provider. It’s important that patients and their families know they have the opportunity to choose.”

Board-certified pediatric urologists belong to a distinct medical group. To become board certified in pediatric urology, a physician must be board certified in adult urology, too. Additionally, the physician must complete a two-year fellowship.

Dr. Blum’s fellowship projects focused on medical device innovations, which she continues pursuing today. She serves as the Medical Director for the Global Center for Medical Innovations, a Georgia Tech affiliate institution.

“It’s an absolute honor to be part of an elite group in the medical field,” says Dr. Blum. “I’m thrilled to represent diversity in urology, and to widen physician options for patients and their families.”
