Pediatric Urology Fellowship
The Center for Pediatric Urology at Children’s Medical Center, led by Warren Snodgrass, M.D., Chief of Urology at Children’s and Professor of Urology at UT Southwestern, provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care to infants, children, and adolescents with congenital and acquired genitourinary disorders.
The program offers the area’s only clinical program dedicated exclusively to helping children overcome dysfunctional voiding. The Urotherapy Center for children with voiding dysfunctions and enuresis provides treatment for children that experience bedwetting, urinary incontinence, or recurrent urinary tract infections caused by daytime voiding dysfunction.
Urology physicians on the medical staff are board certified in urology and have additionally completed fellowship training in pediatric urology; they are nationally recognized as leaders in this subspecialty.
Exclusively limited to children with urologic problems, our clinic has more than 6,000 patients. Surgeons on the medical staff perform approximately 1,200 surgeries each year. A full range of services for pediatric urology problems is provided.
Urology physicians on the medical staff are known for surgical repair of hypospadias, as well as reoperations after failed surgeries. The goal in all cases is to create a functional penis that appears normal. The staff also strives to improve understanding of this common condition through innovative research.
The urology staff also has expertise in pediatric robotic and laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery. The major advantages of these techniques are reduced pain and scarring. These are offered as an option for partial or total nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, and orchiopexy.
Children with bladder disorders such as spina bifida and exstrophy require specialized care. Pediatric Urology physicians on the medical staff are very experienced in the management of these problems and perform complex surgical reconstruction when necessary with the goal of helping these children improve control of their urinary system.
