How Our Kidney Transplant Team Coordinates Care with Pediatric Urology for Complex Conditions

The pediatric kidney transplant surgery team works closely with the urologists and are fortunate to be able to offer our patients the highest level of expertise for even the most complex urological problems.

For several years in a row, the pediatric urology program at The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital has been ranked as a top program nationally by US News and World Report and is the only program in New Jersey to be ranked.

The pediatric urology program is proficient in all aspects of bladder and urinary tract reconstruction, including bladder augmentation with intestinal segments and construction of continent catheterizable urinary stomas.

Our Urology Program has performed more than 1,000 videourodynamic studies.

Accurate videourodynamics are an important part of the evaluation for children with neurogenic bladder problems such as spina bifida and posterior urethral valves to make certain that bladder dysfunction will not harm the kidney.

Our urology team also offers routine and complex endoscopic procedures including infant cystoscopy, ureteroscopy, and deflux injection for reflux.
