Children with urinary- and genital-tract diseases have access to full diagnostic and therapeutic services through the urology program at Children's Mercy. The program has earned recognition as one of the top programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
When conditions require surgical care, we use minimally invasive surgery approaches to reduce discomfort, recovery time and scarring patients experience after surgery. Each child receives long-term follow-up support as needed as well.
At Children’s Mercy, a pediatric anesthesiologist is an active member of your child’s care team before, during and after their surgery or procedure. We administer anesthesia for more than 27,000 kids per year—that’s 74 per day—so our team is experienced at finding just-right doses of medication for kids of all sizes.
Children with congenital anomalies receive expert care here. Staff have received extensive training and experience to achieve successful outcomes. Complex urological problems are approached with a team perspective, bringing all providers together to provide children with access to the best, most convenient care possible. Many of these children require specialized radiographic exams, which can be managed through the Radiology department at Children's Mercy.
