Arkansas Children's Urology offers families a high standard of care that unites multiple services in one program. This reduces the amount of time that children will need to spend seeking treatment for their conditions. Our multidisciplinary services in both the inpatient and outpatient settings form the most comprehensive pediatric urology program in the state.  

Urology Clinic

Children statewide have access to comprehensive outpatient care through the Urology Clinic. Our clinic sees patients in several locations: Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas Children's Northwest in Springdale, and at the regional clinic in Jonesboro. Telehealth visits are available in Texarkana, Fort Smith, and Jonesboro. The patients receive treatment for a variety of conditions involving the genitourinary system, including anomalies of the kidney, ureter, bladder and inguinal region. We also treat urinary tract infections, incontinence, dysfunctional voiding, enuresis and neurogenic dysfunction of the bladder.

Spina Cord Disorders Clinic

Arkansas has a large spina bifida population. Children with spina bifida are born with an opening in their spine, often affecting their urinary tract. Our Urology team works closely with other specialists, including neurosurgeons, orthopedists, nutritionists, and physical and occupational therapists, making it easier for families to have all of their child’s medical needs addressed.

Complex Urology Clinic

For patients with a need for specialized care by Urology and Nephrology, we provide a combined service clinic to save our patients and families additional trips for multiple appointments. In this clinic, we are able to provide high-quality care with the collaboration of two providers in the same clinic setting. This clinic serves patients with conditions related to the urinary system and kidneys.

In STEP Clinic (In Support, Teamwork, Education and Partnership)

Compassion is the cornerstone of our program for children with diagnoses related to sexual development. Arkansas Children’s is committed to offering genuine support in a nurturing environment for these patients.

Our mission is to provide children and their families with the tools to overcome the challenges of their diagnoses. Families whose children have ambiguous genitalia will find support, teamwork, education, and partnership for their journey in this comprehensive specialty clinic. The specially trained team that treats your child includes psychologists, urologists, geneticists, and endocrinologists, as well as a host of support services. Treatment options may include medications or surgery, and some conditions do not require intervention.

The multidisciplinary In STEP Clinic provides evaluation and care for the following:

  • Anomalies of genetic sex differentiation
  • Atypical development of external genitalia
  • Gonadal differentiation
  • Differentiation of the internal sex ducts
  • Incomplete development of sex anatomy

We are grateful for the opportunity to care for your child and help them fulfill their promise. Primary care physicians refer patients to the In STEP Clinic at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
