Pediatric Urology involves the diagnosis and treatment of urologic problems in children from birth to early adulthood. Some conditions, such as fluid filled enlargement of the kidneys, are even evaluated antenatally (before birth). The pediatric urology program at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is under the direction of Dr. Joseph G. Barone. It is truly a world class program, offering treatment of hernia and hydrocele, vesicoureteral reflux, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, hypospadias, voiding dysfunction and infection. For children who wet, the pediatric urology program offers a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment program, one of a few such programs in the country. Though day procedures may be performed at one of several surgicenters, the Pediatric Urology Program is based at The Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. The Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital features a variety of pediatric subspecialists for situations which require a multidisciplinary approach, including pediatric radiology and pediatric anesthesia. Pediatric child life nurses provide an excellent teaching program for child who require surgery. At the Children's Hospital you are encouraged to accompany your child into the operating room, comfort your child in the postoperative recovery room, and sleep in your child's room should an overnight stay be necessary. Dr. Barone also provides a second opinion program for consultation before your child has surgery.
