Care at 10 locations
The Division of Urology at Lurie Children’s, ranked 6th in the nation by U.S.News & World Report, is the largest pediatric urology department in the region with more than 17,000 pediatric visits each year for both common and complex conditions. Our doctors can see your child for any urologic condition, from urinary tract infections and bedwetting to bladder reconstruction.
Our board-certified physicians are internationally known in the field for their clinical expertise and cutting-edge research. Our nurse practitioners have completed advanced training in pediatrics focusing on urology patients. The entire staff is dedicated to caring for infants, children and teens.
We perform thousands of procedures every year. Our surgical outcomes are among the best in the country. If your child needs an operation, many of our doctors are experts in minimally invasive surgery, including robotic surgery (da Vinci® robot-assisted system). Patients benefit from our collaboration, combined knowledge and experienced team members. Our urologists meet weekly to review upcoming surgeries, discuss plans and share ideas.

Tests & Treatments
We work closely with our colleagues at the The Chicago Institute for Fetal Health to treat fetal urological issues. Problems arise when urine does not flow freely through ureters (this is called obstruction) or when the urine flows backward in the system because of faulty valvular structures (this is called reflux).
Learning Module for Pediatricians
Our new learning module for pediatricians provides training and information on how to manage newborns who had an abnormal fetal ultrasound showing a urological anomaly.
