Transitional Urology

When teens with urologic conditions mature into adulthood, additional monitoring and treatment may need to occur. However, some may become frustrated at the lack of urologists who can take on complex pediatric urology conditions in adolescents. Our Transitional Urology program provides a thorough solution by offering seamless, top-quality care, with physicians who understand and specialize in the complexities around pediatric and adolescent urology.

Led by Dr. Joseph G. Barone, the Transitional Urology program is the first of its kind in New Jersey. Patients in the program receive continued expert care with two types of physicians: a pediatric urologist, in collaboration with an adult urologist with an expertise in pediatric urology conditions affecting young adults. This ensures that patients receive the greatest level of care, health, and well-being during their transition into adulthood.

Long-term follow-up care is commonly required for pediatric urologic conditions, such as:

  • Spina bifida
  • Neurogenic bladder or bowel
  • Hypospadias or epispadias
  • Bladder exstrophy or cloacal anomalies
  • Intersex or disorders of sex development
  • Infertility and sexual disorders associated with pediatric urological conditions
  • Vesicoureteral reflux and renal insufficiency
  • Prune belly syndrome
  • Posterior urethral valves and urinary incontinence
  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Bladder chemodenervation
  • Sacral neuromodulation
  • Urologic cancers diagnosed in childhood
  • Other unresolved urologic problems diagnosed in childhood (bedwetting, testis problems, etc.)

Initial consultations are encouraged for adults, regardless of age, who have pediatric urology conditions. You'll have our team on your side, so your condition can be monitored without interruption. After a consultation, a multi-disciplinary team of pediatric and adult urologists will conference to carefully review your case. They'll develop the best course of treatment and follow-up care to optimize a healthy outcome.
