We understand that seeking treatment for a urological disorder can be stressful. Our Urology team provides families with every resource possible to make their treatment easier. Here’s what you can expect.

If you’re visiting the Urology Clinic, you may have been referred by your child’s primary pediatrician. We will have background on your child, but will appreciate any context you can provide.

Pre-Visit:

  • It will be helpful to complete our standard medical history forms.
  • Please make sure you bring a list of your child's (the patient's) medications including medication name, dosage, and how often it's taken.
  • Please make sure you have your insurance card, ID, and any co-pay.
  • Ask your child’s primary care physician to fax us records about your child’s health to include test results related to the reason your child is coming in to see Urology.

During Visit:

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
  • Check-in at the Welcome touch screen in the clinic.
  • After registering in Urology Clinic with our Patient Access Representative, you will be assisted with signing up for MyChart. At Arkansas Children’s Hospital, MyChart is the secure online access to portions of your child’s medical records. You can securely communicate with the health care team about:
    • Your child’s condition or test results
    • Request prescription renewals
    • View and track your child’s immunization record
  • A nurse or tech will call you and your child back to an exam room where your child’s weight, height, and blood pressure will be taken.  Your child also may be asked to urinate in a cup in a private bathroom, with your assistance if needed. Get more information about common urology tests and procedures.
  • A Urology provider will meet with you to go over family health history and perform a physical, which will be gentle and non-invasive. It will include a thorough exam of your child’s abdomen, pelvis and genitals.
  • After the visit, you will check-out at the front desk to receive a summary of your visit and to schedule a future appointment if needed.

Follow up:

If you have additional questions after your visit, you can call the Urology nurses’ line directly at 501-364-2632 or send a message to our team through MyChart.

What if my child needs surgery?

Urology Services at Arkansas Children’s Hospital has repaired urological conditions for thousands of kids across the region. We provide delicate and comprehensive treatment that parents can trust.

If you think your child might need surgery, he or she will be evaluated by a urologist. You can make an appointment by contacting us or ask your pediatrician for a referral.

After evaluating your child through the Urology Clinic, our specialist will recommend the best course of treatment which may include surgery. They will explain the benefits and risks to you, creating a plan that works best for your family.

If surgery is required, a surgery scheduler will work with you and the surgeon to arrange a date. To schedule surgery, please call our office at 501-364-3960.
