Session 10: Pediatric Urology
Pediatric urology is a surgical subspecialty of medicine that deals with diseases of the genitourinary systems in children. Pediatric Urologists care for both boys and girls from infancy through early adulthood. The problems that affect the testicles, reproductive organs, and urine are the most common. Most Pediatric urologists in North America collaborate with Pediatric hospitals. As part of the training for Pediatric Urology board certification, an internship in surgery as part of a urology residency is frequently followed by specialized training in Pediatric urology in a renowned children's hospital. In India, Pediatric urology is practiced by both adult urologists with Pediatric urology training and Pediatric surgeons with a concentration in Pediatric Urology.
