Dr. Diana K. Bowen is a urologist who treats children of all ages with a range of pediatric urologic conditions that span the newborn period through young adulthood. She has extensive experience in surgical correction of congenital anomalies, kidney stone disease, minimally invasive surgery, hydronephrosis and penile and testicular conditions.

Dr. Bowen has a specific interest in reconstructive surgery and complex conditions of the genitourinary system such as spina bifida and bladder exstrophy.

As a researcher, she is primarily interested in clinical and patient-centered outcomes from complex genitourinary surgery. In particular, development of effective transitional care models for patients with chronic urologic conditions as well as for transgender and gender non-binary (TGNB) patients. Additionally, she has an interest in developing new protocols to reduce radiation exposure in children and harnessing new technology, such as contrast-enhanced ultrasound, to further these goals. Her prior research was focused in kidney stone disease and minimally invasive surgery.
