Pediatric Urology

ColumbiaDoctors are world renowned for their expertise in pediatric urology. We treat infants and children of all ages who are born with or develop disorders of the urinary tract and genitals. We understand how challenging these conditions can be for children and their families. Genitourinary tract disorders can affect self-esteem, sexuality, and quality of life.

We have pioneered new treatments and surgical techniques to correct these problems and help our patients have normal and healthy childhoods.

Our Expertise

Our team of pediatric urologists routinely performs complex reconstructive surgery for congenital disorders, including abnormalities of the bladder, urethra, and genitalia. We also "re-operate" when patients who have already had urologic surgery need an additional repair.

We specialize in minimally invasive surgery, genito-urinary reconstruction, kidney transplant for urologic patients, comprehensive management of disorders of sex development, management of the neurogenic bladder, treatment of kidney stones, and dysfunctional voiding.

When a child needs surgery, our pediatric urologists use minimally invasive approaches whenever possible. We use the latest endoscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic techniques, and are pioneers of new approaches in children.


We have years of experience and expertise in all aspects of this complex field and often collaborate with other specialists to achieve the best surgical outcomes. We draw patients from the tri-state area and beyond—from across the country and around the world.

We also work closely with doctors at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital's Center for Prenatal Pediatrics to evaluate and coordinate care for fetuses with urologic problems. Our maternal-fetal medicine team is among the largest and most experienced anywhere. Our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is one of the most advanced in the United States, and has been cited several times for its excellence and dedication to patient care.


All of our physicians are on the faculty of Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian, routinely ranked one of the best hospitals in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. They are also affiliated with the NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, the largest and oldest hospital for infants and children in New York, and one of the finest in the country. Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital has been an internationally recognized Center for urinary tract reconstruction for more than 30 years.

Many of our specialists appear on the New York magazine-Castle Connolly list of America's Top Doctors and are among the most accomplished in their field. ColumbiaDoctors pediatric urologists are among the most celebrated in the world for advancing the care and treatment of children with various genitourinary conditions.
