Conditions

From the beginning of care, through treatment, and into recovery, we provide an experience that’s right for children and families. Children’s National Health System provides a wide range of clinical services and specialties dedicated to improving children’s health.

Pediatric Horseshoe Kidney

Horseshoe kidney occurs in about one in 500 children. It occurs during fetal development as the kidneys move into their normal position in the flank area (area around the side, just above the waist).

Pediatric Circumcision

Circumcision is a surgical procedure to remove the skin covering the end of the penis, called the foreskin. In many cultures, circumcision is a religious rite or a ceremonial tradition.

Pediatric Ectopic Ureter

When one of the ureters does not connect properly to the bladder and drains somewhere outside the bladder, this condition is called an ectopic ureter.

Pediatric Undescended Testis

Cryptorchidism (or undescended testes) is a condition seen in newborns when one or both of the male testes have not passed down into the scrotal sac.
