Urology

Compassionately managing conditions affecting the kidneys, bladder, urethra or genital tract in pediatric patients.


Duke's multidisciplinary team provides compassionate, state-of-the-art medical and surgical patient care in all areas of pediatric urology. Our team consists of three pediatric urologists, a pediatric nurse practitioner specializing in bladder dysfunction, and a nurse clinician/urotherapist. We provide services from prenatal consults to fetuses with urologic disorders up to adolescents. We provide surgical care and conduct clinics at four locations in Durham and Raleigh.

  • Hypospadias

Disease-Specific Programs

We offer several specialty clinics including:

Additionally, consultative services are utilized from the Department of Physical Therapy and the Department of Psychology and Behavioral Medicine.
