Why Choose Urology Care at Children's Hospital

  • Recognized excellence

    U.S. News & World Report has named Children's Hospital the no. 1 hospital in Tennessee and the Southeast for pediatric urology care. Our program has been ranked in the top 10 every year since the U.S News rankings began.

  • Convenient care

    You have access to our pediatric urologists at our regional Children’s clinics throughout Tennessee, including Chattanooga, Cookeville, Jackson, Murfreesboro, Spring Hill and Memphis.

  • Leading-edge technology

    We offer robotic precision with a human touch. Our surgeons use a robotic device for pediatric urology surgeries, joining an elite group of children's hospitals that employ this innovative tool. We performed the first pediatric robotic renal surgery in the state of Tennessee in 2010. Our surgeons are also skilled at reconstructive procedures with standard laparoscopy. In addition, we have one of the largest experiences in the country with sacral neuromodulation for children with refractory voiding dysfunction.

  • Innovative research

    We are currently involved in nationally funded, award-winning basic science research in a state-of-the-art laboratory. We have led the NIH funded Management of Myelomeningocele (MOMS) trial and are involved in the Center for Disease Control Spina Bifida Program as a center of excellence in managing this condition.

  • Training future leaders

    We offer a highly sought after two-year Pediatric Urology Fellowship that trains the leaders of the future. See where our previous Urology fellows have gone.

  • Transition of Care

    Some pediatric urology patients need urologic care into adulthood. Our Transition Clinic focuses on moving adolescent patients who have been followed in our clinics to adult care. Your transitioning child and your family will meet with a pediatric urologist, an adult urologist and nurses to develop an individualized plan.

Urology care with compassion, skill, and superior results

Our pediatric urologists strive to provide the nation's best urology care for children and their families. We do this by understanding your problem, providing solutions and keeping you informed along each step of the way.
