Treatments

At Children's National, we treat the whole child, paying special attention to your child's physical and emotional needs. Discover more information about available treatments from the Urology team.

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.

Urinary Stone Program

Children suffer from urinary stones like adults but, when they do, there is a higher likelihood of finding a treatable cause. Stones can form because of infection, problems with calcium or uric acid metabolism or dehydration. As part of the surgical management of urinary stones, your child will be evaluated for treatable causes of stones and referred to nephrology for further care.

Robotic Surgery

Children’s National Hospital offers robotic surgery as a minimally invasive option for some pediatric urologic procedures, including pyeloplasty for obstruction and ureteral reimplantation for vesicoureteral reflux.
