Children from across the state and region depend on the care of the Division of Urology at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Whether they need a complex birth defect repaired, assistance with prolonged bed-wetting or help resolving kidney stones, children require specialized care. Their bodies are smaller and more delicate. Their treatments must be too.
Families know they receive care tailored to their children when they bring them to ACH Urology. Our board-certified specialists understand that urologic disorders can be challenging both physically and emotionally. We offer comprehensive support that begins at the first evaluation and continues past recovery.
ACH urologists offer families expertise in noninvasive testing and minimally invasive surgery. They also have special training in a wide range of disorders including hypospadias, dysfunctional voiding and ambiguous genitalia.
Our specialists spend time with each patient, listening carefully to their concerns and creating a plan with the family’s input. This patient-focused environment leads to a better outcome for every child.
