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.
