Pediatric Bladder and Continence Program
Urinary incontinence, while it may be a phase that passes in time, is often a symptom of another issue. Our Pediatric Bladder and Continence Program is comprised of leading pediatric urologists dedicated to helping children who are unable to control their bladder and experience urinary accidents. We take care of the simple to the complex, and work with a multidisciplinary team, which includes psychologists, pediatric surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists and gastroenterologists to provide the highest level of comprehensive care for your child.
Our team will meet with you and your child to gain a comprehensive review of their medical history, and also to perform a physical exam to pinpoint the source of the issue. We will commonly perform non-invasive tests, such as a urinalysis, renal ultrasound, and bladder scans to look for retained urine and a uroflowmetry to assess how efficiently your child voids. Rarely is there a need for blood tests or invasive testing such as catheterization or urodynamics to measure blood pressures.
Most all causes of urinary incontinence can be effectively treated with one or a combination of treatments.
