The Children's Mercy urology program focuses on all aspects of pediatric urology, from surgical care to long-term follow-up support. Patients with urinary- and genital-tract diseases have access to full diagnostic and therapeutic services through the Children's Mercy urologic surgery program. We use minimally invasive surgery approaches to reduce recovery time and scarring patients experience after surgery.
Our staff manages complex congenital anomalies that require extensive training and experience to achieve successful outcomes. Many of these patients require specialized radiographic exams, which the Children's Mercy Radiology staff has experience handling.
