Urology

Urologists treat problems related to the kidneys, bladder, and genitalia. At UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, our urologists are pediatric specialists who can provide comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care to children with urological conditions, including complex genital and bladder malformations. Because urological disorders can range from bed-wetting to serious birth defects of the genitalia, we provide a full range of treatments for all urological conditions.
