When your child needs specialized care for their urological condition, you can trust the experienced pediatric urologists at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. Our team of urologists have the expertise needed to provide care for a wide range of pediatric urological conditions.

Genital Conditions

  1. Hypospadias: When the opening that carries urine out of the body from the penis is on the underside, rather than at the tip, of the penis
  2. Meatal stenosis: A narrowing of the opening of the urethra, the tube through which urine leaves the body
  3. Undescended testes: When the testes, which form inside the abdomen, fail to move down into the scrotum
  4. Hydrocele: A buildup of fluid in the scrotum around one of the testicles
  5. Inguinal hernia: When an organ, usually a part of the intestine, protrudes through the abdominal wall into the groin area
  6. Testicular torsion: The twisting of the spermatic cord, which cuts off the blood supply to one of the testicles
  7. Varicoceles: An enlargement of the veins in the scrotum caused by blocked blood flow
  8. Ambiguous genitalia: A birth defect where the outer genitals do not have the typical appearance of either a boy or a girl

Kidney and Bladder Conditions

  1. Hydronephrosis: Dilation or stretching of the kidney when urine drainage is blocked
  2. Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR): The abnormal flow of urine from the bladder back into the ureters
  3. Urinary tract infections (UTIs): An infection which can affect the lower tract, or bladder, or the upper tract, the kidneys
  4. Enuresis: Daytime voiding dysfunction and nighttime bedwetting, including urgent and frequent urination
  5. Kidney and bladder stones: When chemicals in the urine crystallize into "stones" in the urinary tract
  6. Neurogenic bladder: Abnormal function of the bladder due to disease of the central nervous system or peripheral nerves
