Your child isn’t just a small adult, especially when it comes to conditions affecting the kidneys, ureter, bladder, urethra, penis and testes. A child’s genitourinary system (reproductive system and urinary tract) is still growing and developing. Our board certified pediatric urologists care for many genitourinary conditions and are committed to providing the least invasive treatments available.
We focus on children from newborns to age 18, with particular emphasis on developmental issues affecting the kidneys, bladder, urethra, or genital tract. In many cases, we begin working with families before their baby is born, when urologic issues are identified on prenatal ultrasounds.
We offer a caring environment for our patients and their families. We listen to your concerns and answer your questions. We believe in family-centered care, which means we take care of your whole family and ensure you’re deeply involved in your child’s care. We emphasize family education and counseling.
Patrick H. McKenna, MD, FACS, FAAP, and Mercyhealth have established a regional center to manage all degrees of hypospadias, complex redo operations and other genitourinary abnormalities including chordee, epispadias and hidden penis. For more information, click here.
