Innovation: 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.
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.
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.
We offer a full range of tests, treatments, and services including:
